Cotton Comes to Harlem by Chester Himes
Book DescriptionBible Flowers is a celebration of the lasting beauty of the language of the Bible and the richness of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. An inspirational accompaniment to the Bible, this delightful book is filled with references to plants, fruits, gardens, and agriculture, from Genesis to the Gospels, and adorned with beautiful manuscript illuminations. The plants -- ranging from herbs to trees, wildflowers to imported, cultivated plants that would have grown 2,000 years ago -- have been the source of much curiosity and interest.The illustrations in Bible Flowers are taken from the most richly decorated manuscripts from the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries, painted by Flemish, French, and Italian masters. Now priceless treasures, the original pages from Bibles, Breviaries, Books of Hours, and Psalters are beautifully reproduced in this exquisite collection.Black film-flam man Deke O'Hara is no sooner out of Atlanta's state penitentiary than he's back on the streets working the scam of a lifetime. As sponsor of the Back-to-Africa movement he's counting on the big Harlem rally to produce a big collection-for his own private charity. But the take-$87,000-is hijacked by white gunmen and hidden in a bale of cotton that suddenly everybody wants to get his hands on. With Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones on everyone's trail and piecing together the complexity of the scheme, Cotton Comes to Harlem is one of Himes's hardest-hitting and most entertaining thrillers.
