The Surrender Tree

Margarita Engle

How can there be a little war? Are some deaths smaller than others, leaving mothers who weep a little less? Cuba has fought three wars for independence, and still she is not free. Her people have been rounded up in reconcentration camps, where there is always too little food and too much illness. Rosa knows how to heal sickness with medicines made from wild plants. But with a price on her head for helping the rebels, Rosa dares not go out in the open. Instead, she turns hidden caves into hospitals for those who know how to find her. Black, white, Cuban, Spanish-Rosa does her best for everyone, even Lieutenant Death, who has sworn to kill her. Yet who can heal a country so torn apart by war? In this history in verse, acclaimed poet Margarita Engle has created a lyrical, powerful portrait of Cuba. Cast List - ROSA: Yesenia Cabrero: - LIEUTENANT DEATH: Ozzie Rodriguez - JOSE: Chris Nunez - LIEUTENANT-GENERAL VALERIANO WEYLER: Roberto Santana - SYLVIA: Vane Millon From the Compact Disc edition.
