"Luha ng Buwaya has 53 chapters. The story is about poor farmers uniting against the greedy desires of the prominent family of the Grandes. In Filipino idioms, "crocodiles" were used to symbolize those people who are corrupt. The "buwaya" (crocodile) in the title refers to the Grandes family, who were greedy for money. Luha ng Buwaya was based on the author's personal experiences while imprisoned in the New Bilibid Prison from 1951 until his release on parole in 1956. The novel is about peasants from a neighborhood and their leader, a school teacher, fighting against oppression and greed. Through their action, the people find renewed belief in their capabilities. The story is based on the socio-political problems in the Philippines from the 1930s until the 1950s"--cataloger's summary based on various websites.
