Award-winning travel writer Dervla Murphy’s journey into the heart of Cuba in The Island that Dared is a three-generation adventure into one of the Caribbean’s most fascinating islands. Accompanied by her daughter and grand-daughters, their adventure leads them into the hills and along the coast as they camp out on empty beaches beneath the stars and relish the ubiquitous Cuban hospitality.
But this is just the start of a full-fledged quest to understand the unique society created by the Cuban Revolution. Murphy returns alone to explore the mountains, coastal swamps and decaying cities, investigating the experience of modern Cuba with her unique candid curiosity. Through her own research and through conversations with Fidelistas and their critics alike, The Island that Dared builds a complex picture of a people struggling to retain their identity in the face of insistent American hostility.
Murphy’s own Irish background makes her an eloquent witness for an island culture standing out against a rich and powerful neighbour.
