Elementor #1842

59 years ago today, Camilo Cienfuegos, the Cuban revolutionary who’s on the cover of my book, took off into the softened light of dusk in a small, two-engined Cessna. He was accompanied by his pilot, and their flight path from Camaguey to Havana lay entirely over land, but the plane was never seen again. A Hundred Fires in Cuba rests on that foundation: the disappearance of one of the great heros of the Cuban Revolution. There’s more on this story at https://johnthorndike.com.
