Primeros pobladores (La historia del valle del Cemí) (Spanish) Paperback – 2013
"The Other Woman" by Sandie Jones
“The Other Woman is an absorbing thriller with a great twist. A perfect beach read.” ― Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of "The Great Alone" Pre-order today
"The History of the Cemí Valley" First Settlers Volume 1, chronicles the conflicts and triumphs of Santa Isabel; a town in southern Puerto Rico that has persevered against all odds. The town is currently known for its giant windmills and as "the capital of agriculture" because 80% of the country agricultural products are generated on these lands. European settlers were drawn to the land in the nineteenth century by the abundance of good soil, much like the Igneri and Taino natives centuries before them. This book presents extensive research by American, European, and Puertorrican archeologists from 1875 to the present. "The History of the Cemí Valley" tells the story of the people of Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico from the first settlers in 850 BC to 1899. The book also includes the unknown history of the port city of Coamo, the third village founded in Puerto Rico by the Spaniards. Melvin Rivera Velázquez details the impact of the European settlers and the accelerated economic growth in the XIX century. He explains the process of establishing the town, where neighbors said, "the sky was beautiful and cheerful." During this process the government authorities in Coamo attempted to move their town hall to this valley to prevent the secession of Santa Isabel. The book chronicles the difficulties in building the Catholic church and the murder of a priest by a runaway slave. Rivera talks about the sugar mills, their awards, conflicts over water, the huge smuggling through the port and the "Junta de Vagos" created to punish those who did not do the work. Slavery in the town is detailed with documented selling of black and white slaves including children. "The History of the Cemí Valley" First Settlers Volume 1, ends with the entry of the U.S. Army, where they lodged, and how they were received.
