Description: When a ten-year-old Texan moves to Haiti in the 1950's, she is instantly plunged into a world of voodoo, zombies and political unrest. To her, it is a paradise.

Living in Camp P??ligre, a construction camp miles from civilization, Lizbuthann, her parrot, Pee Wee, and their best friend, Doux Doux Boudreaux, spend many hours roaming jungle paths on horseback, swimming untamed rivers, swinging from Tarzan ropes dangling from giant kapok trees, and indulging in a little unwelcome "snoopery" inspired by childhood detective novels. Unfazed by tropical disease, storms, and varmints, Lizbuthann is determined to delve into an even more dangerous and forbidden world: witchcraft and zombies. Her precocious and curious nature inevitably lands her, and everyone around her, in a heap of havoc.

Innocence and evil compete in this humorous coming-of-age fictography that takes us back to another time and place, where rivers-and little girls-ran wild and free.
