This book recounts in the most engaging way the little known history between the United States and Cuba. Woven into the narrative are Craig's experiences in present day Cuba - particularly relevant now that Cuba is becoming a travel destination for many Americans. Our knowledge of Cuba has been defined by stereotypes - Craig has done us a service ``

I loved the book! Especially interesting to me as a history nut was the context provided by Bill's recounting of life in Cuba under Spain and the cultural/religious influences that still impact people's daily lives. Reading about America's involvement with Cuba was a real eye opener. I think most people only know about the Bay of Pigs and how we almost went to war with Russia over Cuba in the 60s. I felt like I was there in every anecdote he shared with the reader! Buy this book for an enjoyable read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
