This is a collection of narrative stories and essays on Philippine history about events in the late 19th to the 20th centuries. Some of the stories are derived from oral history written down for the first time and preserved to be read by future generations. It also opens unintended controversies about how things happened such as how the Katipunan was betrayed or how General Antonio Luna was assassinated or Emilio Aguinaldo defended his actions during the Philippine Revolution. The stories can be checked with the established version for the readers comparison. Though intended as light historical reading, the book provides a down-to-earth view of the past and how it is appreciated by the Filipinos of today.
