Format: Hardcover
I discovered this book while perusing through stacks of dusty volumes in a used book store in Santa Fe, NM in the mid 80's. Thinking that I knew something of the island's history, I commenced to explore chapter one. Two days later I emerged from a wonderful and educational experience that left me feeling less sure of my ethnocentric gringo attitude. Steiner had reached me and showed me a different side of the culture and people that I had made my own through marriage. If you know nothing of Puerto Rico or think you know a lot, read this book. I hope you find it as enjoyable as I did.

P.S. this is my first review so it may not follow traditional form but I really liked this book !!!
