(PRWEB) May 20, 2006 -- "Cuba is a State of Mind: The Spiritual Traveler, Vol. 1," by p. w. long, with Juaquin Santiago and Elijo Truth, is an innovative travel guide that opens readers’ eyes to a little known Cuba by giving voice to Cuba’s silent majority.
“ Cuba is a State of Mind ”
Full of magical energy and limitless promise, Cuba seems to grab people by the soul and change them forever. Richly poetic and reading more like a novel than a travel guide, "Cuba is a State of Mind" is the first book to give readers the reality of the landscape, rather than just a map to the local sights. This work is about the real Cubans, the black and rural white, who struggle to build a life in the country they love.
Written as an intimate travel narrative, "Cuba is a State of Mind" enters the lives of its silent majority, giving readers a startling insider’s perspective. Why is Ché so revered by Cubans? What is the plight of the Black Cuban and why are Cubans so devoted to Fidel Castro and so concerned about what might happen after he dies? While no one in Cuba feels life is easy, they all acknowledge it is better. “This socialist island in the sea of capitalism” has a strength of spirit, a culture and a humanity that overcomes all adversity.
Written by three intrepid travelers who experience and write about the human consciousness of the places they visit, "Cuba is a State of Mind" gives readers a passport into Cuba’s cultural, political, economic and environmental issues. Travel is broadening, but here, in this uniquely personal guide, travel can open your eyes—and your heart.
