The Land Columbus Loved: The Dominican Republic


Harding, Bertita, The Land Columbus Loved: The Dominican Republic, New York: Coward – McCann, Inc., 1949.

Reviewed in Kirkus.

Bertita Harding (11 November 1902 – 31 December 1971) was a royal biographer with an easy and sometimes humorous style that made her a popular author.
(…)
In 1940 she made a trip to Brazil that inspired her books on the House of Braganza of Brazil. The following year she began a career as lecturer, giving more than 120 lectures throughout the United States. During World War II her husband served as lieutenant colonel and she sold war bonds on support of the troops. In the last part of the 1940s Bertita published The Land Columbus loved, a traveling book written with her husband, and wrote, Mosaic, in the Fountain, an autobiographical book covering her childhood. The couple had an active social life and traveled extensively as Bertita continued her series of lectures around the United States.

In the Tropics: by a Settler in Santo Domingo


Fabens, Joseph Warren, In the Tropics: by a Settler in Santo Domingo / With an introductory notice by Richard B. Kimball, New York: Carleton, 1863.

Available online.

Author and commercial agent Joseph W. Fabens and land speculator Henry L. Kinney were filibusters in Central America in 1855. In 1854, largely financed by New York backers, Kinney purchased millions of acres of land in Nicaragua under dubious legal circumstances, with the intent to start a colony. In February 1855 Kinney was warned that his proposed colony might violate the U.S. Neutrality Act as well. In April 1855 both Kinney and Fabens were arrested in New York and their vessel blockaded by the U.S. Navy at its East River wharf. Released on bail Kinney slipped out of New York and traveled to Nicaragua. With a handful of followers he launched a failed revolt against both the Nicaraguan government and the regime of fellow American William Walker.
