"For its style, humanity and vision, Yankee Come Home is beyond praise. The writing is sharper, the descriptions more evocative, than anything I have read in years."—Jack Beatty, author of The Lost History of 1914 and Age of Betrayal
"Cuba is mostly unfamiliar territory for US travelers, which is ironic given how the United States was the dominating presence there for so much of its history. With Yankee Come Home, William Craig does his US readers a great favor, entertaining us with his adventures across Cuba but reminding us along the way of how US interventions left the island scarred."—Tom Gjelten, author of Bacardi and the Long Fight for Cuba"Craig braids the history of Cuban-American relations with quick, fluent grace."—Nicholson Baker, author of Human Smoke"Intrepid Bill Craig’s wild journeys through Cuba tell a story no one has told before: The legacy of America’s disastrous 1898 intervention. With solid-gold reporting and a quirky flair for drama, humor, and pathos, Craig reveals not only a hidden Cuba, but the hidden heart of America, too. The book is bound to be a classic."—Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig and Spell of the Tiger
