  1. The Continental Modeller

    From The Continental Modeller, Feb 2013:
    “With an unusual and possibly unique status as visitor, accepted friend, and sometime resident, the author was able to photograph and record a complex and interesting country, often with access not accorded the fleeting tourist.”

  2. NG&SL Gazette

    NG&SL Gazette, 11/2012
    “This is a beautifully done book written by an author who loves Cuba and its trains, automobiles, and people. It is printed on good quality paper with 541 color photos, 115 vintage archive photos, 13 maps, and 41 pieces of art.”
