  Jim,

  I have The Foxes of Harrow and it appears to be a beautiful scan.  I want 
to read it, so it will get the TLC treatment.  It was beautifully written. 
I read a hand copied Braille version of it a long time ago.  Frank Yerby 
created a real masterpiece with this one!  It is long, so it will take me 
awhile, but when I upload it all the Yerby fans will be pleased with it.

  Thanks for scanning this beautifully written book!

  Sue S.

  Just submitted The Foxes of Harrew by Frank Yerby
  From the inside flaps
  Stephen Fox was a professional gambler and reckless adventurer; he arrived 
in New Orleans in 1825 with a ten-dollar gold piece, a pearl stick-pin and a 
dream. He was tall, red-haired, with a face that brought visions of both 
pride and inso­lence, a man determined to make his fortune the fastest way 
possible.

  Within a week of his arrival, his eyes were opened to stakes larger than 
the gaming tables ever offered. The rich sugar plantations along the river, 
the grand elegance of their French owners, their richly-gowned ladies—all 
spurred him with envy and ambition. And before long, Stephen Fox saw his 
chance and took it, taking power from an indolent, slave-rid­den, castebound 
people. He gambled and won, building Harrow, Louisiana's richest plantation.

  With brashness and daring he carved himself an empire, but he foolishly 
allowed it to become dominated by three handsome women who engulfed and! 
threatened to destroy Him..... Odalie, his aristocratic but remote wife; 
Aurore, his sister-in-law, hopelessly waiting to succeed her sister in his 
affections; Desiree, the voluptuous quadroon, suffering despair and social 
ostracism to be near him.

  A superb reconstruction of this passion­ate era, THE FOXES OF HARROW 
brings vividly to life the troubled, yet luxurious times of the pre-Civil 
War South, dramatically revealed in this stirring chronicle of an arrogant 
dynasty.
