Description

'He said I should know the road we had come if I would march surely forward.' So Japheth, a boy of 12, with 'sharp black eyes' that missed nothing, learned of the past from his grandpa Joe, and intended to witness and be a part of all he could of history in the making. Sixty-Five is an account of the revolt led by Deacon Paul Bogle in Morant Bay, Jamaica in October 1865. Japheth Murray lives through the revolt at the side of his grandfather - formerly a soldier with the West India Regiment, who persistently tries to give Deacon Bogle good military advice - and Japheth's father stays with Deacon Bogle till the last stand against the English soldiers up in the hills.
