Description

When Charlie moves to the small town of Taper, Florida, he discovers a different world. Pinned between the Everglades and the swampy banks of Lake Okeechobee, the small town produces sugar cane, as well as the fastest runners in the country. Kids chase muck rabbits in the fields while the cane is being burned and harvested. Dodging flames and blades and breathing smoke, they run down the rabbits for three dollars a skin. And when they can do that, running in football games is easy.

But there are things in the swamp that seem connected to sprawling mounds older than the swamps. Together with his step-second cousin "Cotton" Mack, the fastest boy on the muck, Charlie hunts secrets in the glades and on the muck flats where the cane grows secrets as old as the soft earth — secrets that haunted, tripped, and trapped the original native tribes, ensnared conquistadors, and buried runaway slaves.
