This book introduces readers to tuba, an indigenous wine of the Philippines collected from each gentle drip of the sap from the inflorescence of a coconut. In Leyte and Samar, tuba is the traditional drink that flows freely during celebrations, fiestas, weddings, funeral wakes, and birthday parties. The wine binds together the Waray-waray-speaking people to seek a common purpose and gives them hope for a better future despite natural calamities, tragedies, and benign neglect.
