The Traveller's Tree: A Journey Through the Caribbean Islands
The Traveller's Tree: A Journey Through the Caribbean Islands
Price: 5.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't visit the Caribbean without this book!, 1 Mar 2014

Patrick Leigh Fermor's book, though written some sixty years ago, remains the unsurpassed prose masterpiece about the archipelago of islands that make up the Antilles. It describes in fascinating and erudite detail the peoples, the societies and the cultures that took over this region after Columbus 'discovered' it in 1492, and which still colour it today.

This review is from: Callsign Hades (Kindle Edition)
This is a sobering insight into the paradoxes, sacrifices and terrors of war in Afghanistan and of the extraordinary human qualities that it generates. Paddy Bury's story is immediate, unflinching and (as far as a non-combatant reader can judge) gives a true impression of what we ask our soldiers to do for us. Quite brilliant, in fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars A. Good Point of Departure, 11 Aug 2013

A sound study of the European 'discovery' of the South Pacific and its great continent. A point of departure for further evaluation of this topic. Lucid and insightful.
