Pressestimmen

The turbulent history of Haiti is related in a well-researched and highly readable narrative...Praised by all who have read it as the only complete and fully documented history of Haiti in any language, 'Written in Blood' is certain to become a classic. Proceedings Magazine, (U.S. Naval Institute) As spellbinding as Voodoo, 'Written in Blood' is a matchless history of Haiti and the Haitian people. William Manchester The Heinls tell [this] tragic story well. Footsteps Magazine There is no work in the English language that even approaches the extravagant wealth of information the Heinls have assembled about the world's first black republic. Washington Star There is no work in the English language that even approaches the extravagant wealth of information the Heinls have assembled about the world's first black republic. Washington Star
