Bikol Blend: Bikolanos and Their History By New Day Publishers
Item #: 9711005514



Most Filipinos know little of the history of Bikol region beyond the celebrated eruption of Mount Mayon 1814, which buried the church at Cagsaua. In this book, Dr. Norman G. Owen shares some of the results of his more than twenty years of research on Bikol history, from the isolated Franciscan missions of the Spanish era to the effects of the great Depression.

This is not, by and large, a story of "national heroes." The names that were featured in the essays may not be familiar to many readers: Antonio Martin Laurenciano, Fr. Joseph Perciva, Pedro Estevan, Jose Ma. Penaranda, Simeon Ola, George H. Pierce, Carlos Imperial, Ramon F. Santos. But though their stage was municipal or provincial, far from the national spotlight that focused on Rizal and Quezon, De La Torre and Taft, they too had their parts to play in the Philippine history.

Above all, however this social history: the story of ordinary Filipinos, as they were born, got married, lived and died during an era of enermous change in the Philippine society. They grew rice, abaca and coconuts; they seized economic opportunities and struggle to overcome the hardships of famine, wars and depressions. Through it all the Bikolanos farmed, prayed and survived. It is in the fabric of their everyday lives that the quiet drama of Bikol history is to be found.
