About this title


In August 1994, more than 30,000 Cubans fled the dictatorship of Fidel Castro's in the hopes that one day; the Cuban people would be free. This stirring memoir relates the harrowing tale of Alfredo Gonzalez, one of many brave and fearless balseros to leave Cuba. It chronicles how an ordinary man, in his unrelenting quest for freedom, built and sailed his balsa into the dark and foreboding ocean. Rescued by the United States Coast Guard, he spent twelve months on Guantanamo Bay. Alfredo's journey from a sunburned frightened, but determined, man on balsa into a confident and joyful person, holding a precious visa will pull at your heartstrings. The Big Idea: Balseros gives the reader an intimate look at the indomitable strength of the human spirit.
