This is a novel that is in the guise of the recollections of a gandpa, born into slavery, narrated to his grandson that reveals the lived history of his ancestors as told to him by his mother dating back to 1776 when two of his grandparents were kidnapped in Africa and enslaved in America. This is also the story about how Grandpa and his half brother, also born into slavery, established the Zeals Community and the Zeals School in a hamlet in the South, where they were born and lived all the years of their lives and where for several generations many of their descendants were nurtured. The legacy of these brothers continues to inspire their descendants to live productive and dignity-affirmed lives. In "Grandpa Benjamin," Uriah J. Fields has created a legendary figure, a man equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's
Dilsey in "The Sound and the Fury." Grandpa Benjamin, like Dilsey has 'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. For eighty-eight years this saintly patriarch lived a life that is enviable even in contemporary perspective. This book is part autobiographical and many parts hard-won and commonsensibly wisdom.

Excerpt

"To lose the earth you know , for
greater knowing;
To lose the life you have, for
full life;
To leave the friends you love, for
heavenly loving and angelic fellowship;
To find a land more sweet than home
and more awesome than earth.
Behold! A wind is rising and rivers
are flowing:
Your soul too is rising and flowing;
You are communing with the wind and
the rivers.
You, the wind and the rivers are one.

Farewell Grandpa!
Your Grandson,
UChay (p.151)
