This biography of a runaway slave is arguably the best-known book to have been written and published in revolutionary Cuba. It is the testimonial narrative of Esteban Montejo, a former slave, runaway, and soldier in the Cuban wars of independence. The text is the collaboration between ethnographer Miguel Barnet and Montejo, the result of three years of tape-recorded interviews, transcribed, edited and annotated by Barnet. Montejo provides a first-hand account of slavery in nineteenth-century Cuba-- the language, religion, music, and customs-- and describes life in the sugar plantations and mills and as a runaway slave. Montejo’s text also covers key historical moments, from slavery to Abolition, the Ten Years War, the Spanish American War, and US intervention in the new republic.Reflecting the growing interest in Latin American and Cuban Studies, this student edition includes the complete text in Spanish, notes in English, a time-line of Cuban history and themes for debate and discussion. The extensive introduction focuses on three main areas: an overview of Cuban history featuring slavery, wars of independence and the new republic; an overview of the genre of the testimonial narrative as it emerged as an important literary style in revolutionary Cuba; and an analysis of the relationship between the Cuban Revolution and the publication of the text. There is also an extensive bibliography.

"A disciple of Fernando Ortiz, Miguel Barnet makes an important contribution to the ethnographic literature of the Caribbean with this work, which has received international acclaim. In this biography, Esteban Montejo, a slave who managed to escape from the clutches of the odious "peculiar" institution, recounts his life and describes, perhaps without realizing it, Cuban society at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. A work of enormous importance to understand the cultural subtleties of the Hispanic Caribbean." This is as reviewed in "The New Essential Guide to Spanish Reading" which is published by America Reads Spanish: a campaign aimed to increase the use and reading of the Spanish language through the thousands of libraries, schools and book stores in the US.
