Clint Bennett’s new book “Jason the Slave Warrior" is a testament to how the author was born and grew up in the areas in Florida described in this work of fiction. Bennett spent four years in Europe, notably Spain and France, where he visited and researched the history of numerous locations where the buying and selling of human beings was not only accepted but encouraged.

Clint Bennett, lives in West-Central Florida in the center of the areas described in this novel, has completed his new book “Jason the Slave Warrior": a gripping story that explores the Calusa Indians’ struggle to survive.

Bennett writes, "They branded Martha first, for no particular reason; she just happened to be the adolescent girl child closest and within easy reach of the smiling slave who was doing the branding. She was sobbing and crying, terrified and near panicking. Speaking softly in the singsong dialect of the Wolof tribe, the huge slave doing the branding tried to reassure her that the pain was mild and only temporary. He pointed to his own brand that stood out distinctly on his right shoulder. The brand was the Christian symbol of the cross where Jesus was crucified and murdered. Still smiling, he approached the girl holding the smoking red- and white-hot branding iron. Martha could see small heat waves and light smoke coming off the branding iron and disappearing in the light wind. The pain was horrendous; Martha passed out and her tiny body was eased down to the dirt floor by two slaves helping with the branding. There were four other brands of different designs smoldering in the white-hot flames and the brander would brand thirty slaves today."

Published by Page Publishing, Clint Bennett's emotional work delves into the dark history of the slave trade and monumental struggles of indigenous peoples.

After years of slavery and hardship, Jason told Martha as they carefully planned their escape. “There is a place in Florida where the slavers are afraid to go.” They would seek to escape the torturous treatment they had been subjected to for far too long.
