[light shelfwear, spine slightly turned, faint dust-soiling to top of text block; jacket slightly edgeworn and age-toned]. Agrarian novel of sorts, about a young Spanish farmer who emigrates to Cuba, "where the rising wave of a boom-period sweeps him tempestuously into the drama of Cuban life. He answers the confusion of American mines, local politics, sugar boom, and local revolution with a stubborn simplicity." The Time magazine reviewer observed that "sinister echoes of U.S. big business [and] Havana terrorism are felt only in the background of this pastoral tale of Cuban peasantry," also noting that the author had spent a year in Cuba circa 1928, where he "wandered the countryside, spoke the language, watched the people instead of the politicians." A particularly nice example of the scarce and somewhat fragile dust jacket.
