    This work The History of Cuba Vol 1 is the first of four by Willis Fletcher Johnson Johnson was a journalist rather than a historian but he consulted and referred to many primary sources in this work While I found it readable, especially considering his early 20th century style, it had points where it dragged too At some points it read like a listing of the sequence of frequently changed Spanish colonial officials Not quite as dull as the reciting of generations in the Old Testament but not This work The History of Cuba Vol 1 is the first of four by Willis Fletcher Johnson Johnson was a journalist rather than a historian but he consulted and referred to many primary sources in this work While I found it readable, especially considering his early 20th century style, it had points where it dragged too At some points it read like a listing of the sequence of frequently changed Spanish colonial officials Not quite as dull as the reciting of generations in the Old Testament but not the most interesting part In other parts I was fascinated Johnson connected events in Europe with the history of Cuba and the other colonial holdings He description of the development of the tobacco and sugar industries was well done The horrible treatment of the native people by the Spanish was not neglected or made light of However he described the treatment of African slaves as genial and benign I have seen the plaza in Santiago de Cuba where disobedient slaves were hanged in public It was hardly so benign I found Vol 1 interesting enough that I have downloaded Vol 2 from Gutenberg Project

    Cuba from 1492 to 1725This is the first volume of a 2 volume set on the history of Cuba from 1492 to about 1920 This volume covers the Spanish Colonial period, and is a relatively easy to read account Another reviewer noted sections are akin to the Old Testament with lists of colonial administrators coming and going with little description or engagement Other sections are five star brilliant describing the discovery , topography and key events An interesting read.
