Anyone interested in the story of Cuban independence or a student assigned the subject needs to include this book of poetry. Yes, poetry. The story is told through different individuals as they live through the many years of struggle for independence either as a combatant or non-combatant. I know that history buffs or history teachers only think in prose; I was one of you, until I read this book. Now, I would start any unit on Cuban independence with Ms. Engle's work. You really want to read this one right now.
