Abstract:

Chronicles the life of the little-known Cuban revolutionary who chose the landing site of the Gramma, fought alongside rebels in the Sierra Maestra, documented the revolution, and helped develop the Cohiba cigar brand.

"The Cuban revolution so closely associated with Fidel Castro and Che Guevara also involved those such as Camilo Cienfuegos, Eloy Menoyo, Frank Pais, and Celia Sanchez, all revolutionary heroes in their own right. Sanchez was Castro's supporter, confidante, and--depending on the source--his lover. In this impressive biography Stout (reference librarian, Fordham Univ. Libs.; Havana: La Habana) utilizes interviews, Cuban archives (to which she was granted special access by Castro himself), letters, and other documents to provide an accurate portrait of Sanchez, who ran the planning organization of the revolution after the death of Pais in 1957. Slight in stature, Sanchez saw combat and was arguably the most influential among Castro's cadre of revolutionary leaders. Her role during and after the revolution was remarkable, and Stout's biography tells her story as well as offering insights into other revolutionaries and their contributions. Sanchez's death from cancer in 1980 shook Castro and all of Cuba but her legacy remains in buildings and projects that bear her name."--Publisher's description.
