About this item
Set in early 1950s Cuba, this novel explores the earliest days of what became the M-26-7 movement -- the Cuban Revolution. Ultimately, the socialist regime initiated by Fidel Castro governed Cuba from 1959 to 2008 and remains in power to this day. This novel evokes the earliest days of revolutionary struggle before Che's arrival in 1955. Author Peter Rutkoff has taught American Studies, African American History, African American Migration, and Baseball in American Culture at Kenyon College since 1971.
