Stories Rarely Told: Threads from Philippine History
The second volume of Dr. Augusto V. de Viana's Stories Rarely Told gathers marginalized accounts of Philippine history. Considered insignificant by most historians, these stories have been excluded from the mainstream of written history and have become forgotten through time. Covering the precolonial times to the early American period, the book includes many interesting personalities and topics that avid readers may be encountering for the first time: Enrique of Malacca; Tariq Soliman of Macabebe, Pampanga; Fray Domingo de Salazar, first bishop and archbishop of Manila; Senorita Josefa Roxas y Estrada, the Filipina who almost became a queen of Cambodia; scandals about the Revolution funds; the true patriots and Americanistas during the Philippine-American War, and many more.
