Cabe decir que he llorado mucho alafro que he podido leer el libro completo. Nov 13, Praxedes rated it liked it. This collection of short stories explores the relationship between landowners and peons in Puerto Rico after its Spanish colonial period.

The use of ‘big words’ in the narrative is somewhat unnecessary, but the plots are an accurate reflection of the hardships endured by native alraro and freed slaves. Dec 09, Bookworm rated it it was amazing Shelves: The writing is very heavy on metaphors and hard to get into, but wow, what an excellent depiction of the struggles under colonialism.


Although I am not Puerto Rican and it took me a while to comprehend the prose, I found it to be refreshing and realistic about the lives of the Puerto Rican farmer. This book is a collection of short Puerto Rican stories that gives you a glimpse in the lives of those living in the camp farms during the high of the American industries.

By reading each story you see the general suffering of the farmer, giving emphasis in the black community and many of the diwz they were faced with.

Mi diazz favorita es la del Josco y no creo que ninguna otra historia tenga tanta pasion como esa.
