Description

Hunter Davies has visited twenty-seven Caribbean islands and produced a book which is part travel book, as he describes his wanderings around ten of these islands, and also a highly personal but very informative guide to all the islands. His ten islands include Barbados, Grenada, Tobago, St Lucia, Guadeloupe, Antigua and Cuba - some English speaking, some French and Spanish. Along the way, he tracks down ex-pats who have gone to live and work in the Caribbean, hoping for true happiness or at least a tan. He also talks to returnees - West Indians who after several decades in the UK have returned to their roots and experience different types of cultural shock.show more
