#3: Hugh Cave's writings on Haiti: From Bob Corbett

>From Bob Corbett

Today I was astonished to discover that Hugh B. Cave had written a novel
about Haiti that I didn't know about.  It is DRUMS OF REVOLT, published
in 1957.  I believe Hugh Cave must be the most prolific writer ever on
Haiti, perhaps he is outpaced by Michel Laguerre, but not many others.

I was shocked and hurried to all the book dealers I knew, but not a copy
was to be had.  Since Cave had donated quite a few items to my library I
contacted him.  He told me he only had two copies of that novel and hoped
that I could find it elsewhere, so I have a new book on my most wanted list!

Cave is now 89 and still writing and publishing on the same schedule he's 
written on since the 1920s.  

After the shock of finding I didn't have all his works on Haiti I've 
printed up my bibliography of Hugh B. Cave.  I would ask any others of
you who are Cave buffs (and I know there are a bunch since many of you
have purchased his books from me!) would you please look over my list
to see if you know of any others I've missed.

My library's current holdings are:
