The author Sebastian does a great job at bringing it all back together in the end, illustrating and telling a story I was able to enjoy and continued thinking about after putting the books down.
The book captures something sublime through the use of first-hand accounts and historical photography that really lets history speak for itself. That That style allows for touching moments in the small vignettes to land, giving more weight to the to the diverse array of stills from Puerto Rican life. Pick this book up.
