Summary
  • A bilingual biography of José Martí, who dedicated his life to the promotion of liberty for all men and women. Includes author's note, afterword, and author's sources
  • As a boy, José Martí was inspired by the natural world. He found freedom in the river that rushed to the sea and peace in the palmas reales that swayed in the wind. Freedom, he believed, was the inherent right of all men and women. But his home island of Cuba was colonized by Spain, and some of the people were enslaved by rich landowners. Enraged, Martí took up his pen and fought against this oppression through his writings. By age seventeen, he was declared an enemy of Spain and forced to leave his beloved island. Martí traveled the world, speaking out for Cuba's independence. But throughout his exile, he suffered from illness and homesickness. He found solace in New York's Catskill Mountains, where nature inspired him once again to fight for independence. Written in verse, with excerpts from Marti's seminal Versos sencillos, this book is a beautiful tribute to a brilliant political writer and courageous fighter for freedom--From dust jacket
