The Dark Runner is the story of an African holy man who travels by running. Arriving at his sister’s village, he discovers she has been kidnaped by slavers and traded to the captain of an American ship.
To rescue his sister, he trades himself for her release. He doesn’t understand it but he finds he is driven by an inner impulse to fulfill an unknown destiny in North America.
It is this journey and his impact on all those he meets with a brief telling of their stories and redemption that best describes the story of the Dark Runner.
