Leaf 5: Ana Lucia Luciano

A leaf from:

This Broken Land of Promise:

A Chronicle of Conservation in the Hispaniolan Border Country

I should have mentioned this earlier. I’m very sorry to have to report that Ana Lucia Luciano passed away during the night of April 2-3. Ana was the mother of Franklin Manuel Pérez, the Tree Bank’s Nursery Assistant. Frankie was able to inter his mother next to his father, Beato Pérez, as he had hoped to do. See Leaf 2.

“This Broken Land of Promise” is my attempt to describe and interpret our Tree Bank Hispaniola program. I welcome your comments and questions. Please write me in the comment box below or email me at
