Reviews

Delightful bit of history!


(4 stars)

I find educational value in all of the "Our Little Cousin" series. There are lots of them. KevinS did a great job bringing this one to light. I especially enjoyed the chapters on the Coffee Plantations, how the beans are grown, harvested, and brought to market, depending upon migrant workers during the harvest season. Cool!
