Summary, etc.:
Despite the risks, some American slaves partook of the "forbidden fruit" of marriage. And when the dreaded separation inevitably occurred, slave spouses deeply felt a sorrowful anguish and sometimes made Herculean efforts to re-unite. DeRamus recounts these tales of soul mates who braved bloodhounds, bounty hunters, and bullets to preserve their vows of love.
