From the Publisher
A Field Negroes Handbook is the first work from author Napoleon Wells and takes a hard look at issues of manhood, fidelity, responsibility and survival within the African American community. Written in prose, poetry and essay formats A Field Negroes Handbook has the feel of a journey on a winding road where hard questions are posed, difficult observations are made and answers are offered. How does a young Black man view the world around him and his place in his community? A Field Negroes Handbook explores what that viewpoint may be.
