Summary (From the publisher):

In plague-ridden eighteenth-century Philadelphia, a young itinerant black preacher searches for a mysterious, endangered African woman. His struggle to find her and save them both plummets them both into the nightmare of a society violently splitting itself into white and black, black over white. Spiraling outward from its core image of the Xhosa people's ritual destruction of their herd in a vain attempt to resist European domination--the cattle killing--the novel expands its narrator's search for meaning and love into the America, Europe and South Africa of yesterday and today.
