THE HILLS OF HEBRON (315 pp.)−Sylvia Wynfer−Simon <§-Schusfer ($4.95).
Moses Barton strides into Cockpit Centre wearing a blue turban, white robe, and carrying a shepherd's staff. He announces to the startled Jamaican Negroes that he has come as a messenger of God "to break the neck of cowardice and slavery" and lead them out of bondage.
Prophet Moses has a lamentable weakness for nubile girls, and his first mission fails when he tries to ascend to heaven from the top of a breadfruit tree. Instead he falls to earth, breaks his leg, and is carted off to the insane asylum.
