Cyclone 1878. The cyclone of 1878 was an actual hurricane that started in the Caribbean and raced all the way up to Lake Superior, taking over 22,000 lives in its wake. The facts of the hurricane remain cloudy, but this story is about the fictional island of St. Morantz and how the island faces the cyclone and overcomes adversity, changing the course of history and making their island paradise a new jewel of the Caribbean. This is a story of how one man changed the island and how his courage forced the wealthy plantation owners to end slavery in order to save their island in the cyclone�s aftermath of destruction.
