Título: Coffee Smuggler
Editorial: Dave Holman
Condición del libro:New
Coffee Smuggler is based on the true story of Gabriel De Clieu, a French soldier who stole a coffee plant from King Louis Xv in 1723 and smuggled it to the island of Martinique. There was only one coffee plant in France, locked in the King's botanical garden. The King and many nobles had refused De Clieu's petitions for a cutting of the plant, so De Clieu seduced a noble woman with a strange illness. She had access the royal doctor Chirac who secretly gave a cutting of the King's plant to De Clieu. With the plant in hand, De Clieu boarded the ill-fated Le Dromedaire and faced pirate attacks, a hurricane, and starvation in the doldrums to bring this precious plant back to his home on Martinique. I invite you to set sail on this swashbuckling adventure of the man who brought coffee to the Americas.About the Author:
Coffee Smuggler is Dave's first novel. In researching coffee, he came across the outlandish story of how Gabriel de Clieu smuggled coffee to the Americas. If this is true, why hasn't someone written a book about him? Why indeed.
Dave Holman lives in Maine with his wife Rommy, cat Patas and four dwarf goats: Whoopie Pie, Aurora, Canela, and Silly Willy. Dave attended Carleton College in Minnesoohta and holds an MBA from USM. He has written for Renewing the Countryside, The Free Press, and served as the Outreach and Communications Coordinator for Safe Passage from 2011-2014. He is currently the Assistant Director of Annual Giving at Bowdoin College.
After crisscrossing America to meet with, photograph and write about rural innovators in over 30 states, Dave co-authored Youth Renewing the Countryside in 2009. In 2011, he collaborated with a graphic designer to publish high definition maps of Bolivia and of the city of La Paz, Bolivia.
He has a couple of irons in the fire: a thriller related to ecological and financial security, a book of short stories from his years in Bolivia and also a book about ultra-running. OK, no more clues unless you subscribe to the emailing list, that's where the latest insider info goes. Stay tuned.
