Summary
Cuba has fought three wars for independence, and still she is not free. This history in verse creates a lyrical portrait of Cuba
Summary
Poems that explore Cuba's fight for independence follow Rosa, a nurse who turns hidden caves into hospitals for those who know how to find her, and who does her best to help everyone, with no regard to race or nationality
