Summary Coral Tree: A Costa Rican Canon is a work of short stories and poetry inspired by a country much larger than its territory. These pieces of life arose almost unbidden, such was and continues to be the alchemical effect of this tiny nation. This book is a vacation that begs you to hold it in your hands and let it find its way into your spirit. -- Provided by publisher
