Hacienda Carabobo

This book tells the history of land tenancy of the Hacienda Carabobo, a coffee plantation located in Turgua, outside of Caracas. The Hacienda is the setting for successive events that serve as a microcosm of the history of Venezuela from the sixteenth century to the present. The history and traditions related to coffee growing are interlinked with the turbulent years of the Federal War in Venezuela (1859-1863).
