Part One: Chapters I and II

• As the novel begins in Part One: Chapter I, titled “The Wax Heads,” Ti Noël, an African slave of French plantation owner M. Lenormand de Mézy in the Caribbean, is an expert horseman and immediately picks out a stallion for his owner from among twenty horses.

• Ti Noël also observes the bright posters in a nearby bookseller's, asks about a black man portrayed on a throne, and learns that it's a portrayal of a king of Ti Noël's country.

• In Part One: Chapter II, titled “The Amputation,” Macandal, the great storyteller and carrier of African culture, is milling sugar cane when his arm gets caught in the machine.

• Slaves and the master rush in and apply a tourniquet to stop the bleeding, and the master calls for a machete to cut off the useless arm.
