Cuba Libre

By Elmore Leonard

One of the last books I read from PBP was “Cuba Libre.” It was about some Americans who went to Cuba to sell horses (and guns) at the time the battleship Maine was blown up in Havana harbor, 1898, which started the Spanish–American War. This fictional account had many good historical points and also described how Cubans felt about the Spanish and the Americans. While it was exciting and at times violent, the book could be read by any age for both information and for entertainment. I recommend it for anyone interested in this subject or genre.
