Winds of change : hurricanes & the transformation of nineteenth-century Cuba
Hurricanes are a key factor in the development of modern Cuba. This book shows how these great storms - and three in particular (1842, 1844, 1846) - played a decisive role in shaping the economy, the culture, and the island's history. Eyewitness accounts and agricultural/economic data are used.
