  1. First of all, thumbs up to Gloria Bond for writing the only historical novel I can find on the subject of the Tainos and the destruction the Spanish inflicted upon them Her research is amazing and her characters really come alive.When Columbus discovered what is today Cuba, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, the islands consisted of a peaceful people called the Taino Except for an occasional Caribe attack, they lived in utter peace and solitude They believed that their god, Yocahu, would reward [...]


  2. I agree, the book is corny and has a novice tone about it But Sons of Yocahu was recommended reading from my university Caribbean History course and I found it to be a digestible way of understanding Columbus discovery of Hispaniola It s easy to read historical textbooks and detach yourself from the humanity of the conquered, but the story made me feel for the characters If history is written by the victors , it s interesting to read an interpretation of what the others may have been thinking.


  3. This book was very corny on several levels There were several historical inaccuracies and many of the events were based on speculation Also, the storyline that a Spanish boy was supposed to be the savior of the Tainos was like The Last Samurai The last chapter of Yucahu talking to the reader was pretty ridiculous That being said, I m obsessed with anything Taino so I still iliked it.


  4. This books tells the tales of a Taino family and their struggles during the arrival of the Spaniards in Hispaniola It is a lovely story which, although fictional, paints a picture of the time of colonization which I always wanted to envision.
