Ashes Of The Moon from the Author: C. Fred Alford. If the Indian Wolan hadn’t talked with the trees, or if the trees hadn’t talked back, my cousin Bebe would be safely nestled in her New York City apartment, instead of hiding out with her child, Wolan’s son, deep in the Amazonian rainforest. I’m Bebe’s cousin. Like Bebe, I’m an anthropologist, sent by our relatives to fetch Bebe back after she was charged with murder. It was true. Together with Wolan she had murdered four gold miners who were polluting the Amazon. I thought I could slip her out of the country if she wanted to return. But did she? C. Fred Alford is a Professor of Government and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher at the University of Maryland College Park. He is the author of ten books regarding moral psychology and this is his first novel. Several years ago Mr. Alford won fifth prize in Story magazine's short story contest. He has never been to the Amazon.
