Set in the Canary Islands at the outset of the Spanish Civil War, The Ravine is the provocative, disturbing account of a child's experience with war. Narrated by an unnamed seven-year-old girl, the story begins in the early days of the war when her father - a staunch supporter of the Republic - goes into hiding. As the girl and her family await news of his whereabouts, they learn he is taken prisoner, brought to trial, and eventually sentenced to forced labor in a concentration camp. Confused and bereft, they visit him in the camp, hoping he will be spared the firing squad and the subsequent "burial" in the ravine, a fate that befalls so many prisoners.
