Productbeschrijving The swift and improbable rise of Mel Martinez to the top echelon of America's government began not with a political race but with a burst of gunfire.
In April , an eleven-year-old Martinez huddled on his bedroom floor while Cuban soldiers opened fire on insurgents outside his family's home in the normally sleepy town of Sagua la Grande. With that hail of bullets, the idyllic Cuba of his boyhood was shattered. If political unrest made daily life disturbing and at times frightening, Fidel Castro's Communist Revolution nine months later was nothing short of devastating. Martinez's Catholic school was suddenly shuttered as the Communist regime threw priests out of the country.
A sixteen-year-old boy from his town was seized and killed by a firing squad.
The rest of the tales were born from the myriad conversations he had with many Cuban friends over more than forty years. As is often the case with stories of war, many stories of the Cuban people will go to the graves with the men and women who lived them, like footprints in the sand after the rising of the tide.
This collection demonstrates the common threads of the struggle of Cubans to survive under the cruel oppression of Fidel Castro and Fidel's betrayal of his own people. Passar bra ihop.
