About the Novel:

Salavandra is an isolated Caribbean island. Its products, coffee, lumber and flowers, are controlled by Penkava Inc., a New York based multinational commodity corporation. After discovering that Penkava is responsible for the death of his father, as well as the abysmal working conditions on the island, coffee farmer Antonio Richards ignites a revolution in the midst of a harvest season.
