Translated into English with extensive notes and a wealth of supplementary material, this narrative of a nineteenth-century Cuban émigré brings to life the early Cuban exile communities in Tampa.
Huse draws from local newspaper stories and firsthand accounts to show what authorities and city residents saw and believed about these establishments and the people who frequented them. This unique take on Tampa history reveals a spirited city at work and play, an important cultural hub that continues to both celebrate and come to terms with its many legacies.
