Xamon Song

Author: Adam E. Stone
Publisher: Global Dialogue Press
Xamon Song introduces readers to two young soldiers, Eddie and Mike, from the nation of Carbonia. They are lifelong best friends and frustrated musicians who find themselves half a world away from home, conducting reconnaissance patrols deep in the forests of a tiny country called Xamon. The two friends are increasingly disillusioned, afraid their military service is no longer to the people of Carbonia, but to the profit statements of SangreDenar, a corporation from Carbonia with large logging interests in Xamon. Readers are also introduced to Digna Giraldo Cardona, a human rights activist from Xamon City who is drawn to the forests to investigate persistent rumors of human rights abuses by paramilitary mercenaries linked to SangreDenar. Digna is determined to see for herself what is happening in the most remote, and dangerous, part of her country. This is the world of Xamon Song, a view from the ground of the meeting of cultures, of the human costs of corporate malfeasance and governmental collusion. The result is a novel that is alarming and unforgettable and achingly human, disturbingly real.
