On a cursed Cherokee mountainside, young Ozzie and his family are held prisoner while they await an unspeakable fate. His captor, Blake Savage, will do anything to reclaim the fame he lost, but Blake’s mystical wife, Angelica, longs for a simple life that honors her Cherokee tradition. When an egocentric restaurateur offers Blake a fortune to turn Ozzie’s family into a delicacy for his supper club, Blake can’t resist the temptation. But Ozzie may be more than he seems and will do anything to survive. When dinner is finally served, a Cherokee curse is unleashed that threatens anyone and anything in its path.

Poisoned Soil is a simple story that deals with complex issues.The prose seems to be an all-American version of magical realism, that Garcia Marquez / Isabel Allende technique of making reality magical and magic real.  You will enjoy every minute that you’re reading this book–the characters, the settings, the battles between man and nature, and, of course, that magical realism.” – Bookpleasures.Com Review
