A powerful cultural analysis." --Kirkus Reviews"Impeccably researched history made current and more meaningful by first rate reporting." --Barbara Fischkin, author of Muddy Cup: A Dominican Family Comes of Age in a New America"A delightful yet disturbingly relevant book . . . The economic, political and geographical struggles vividly occurring on Hispaniola are a microcosm of what happens all over the world." --Michael Hopkins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"Wucker peels away layers of history and culture, revealing aspects of Dominican and Haitian culture few have described so clearly.
