The Salt Eaters by Toni Cade Bambara
The Salt Eaters is a 1980 novel, the first such work by Toni Cade Bambara. The novel is written in an experimental style and is explicitly political in tone, with several of the characters being veterans of the civil rights, feminist, and anti-war movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Set in the fictional town of Claybourne, Georgia, a small town somewhere in the South, The Salt Eaters is the story of a community of black faith healers who, searching for the healing properties of salt, witness an event that will change their lives forever.
