Inhaltsangabe: A novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, James A.Michener. Its chief character is the Caribbean Sea and it spans centuries of adventure, from the world of the indigenous Arawaks to the present day. Real and imaginary figures play their part, including Christopher Columbus and Fidel Castro.
From the Inside Flap: James A. Michener, America's foremost storyteller, now explores the exotic region of the Caribbean.
Only Michener could so masterfully bring the turbulent, dramatic history of the beautiful Caribbean to life. Moving from the European Courts of the 15th century that first claimed the region, to the Islands themselves, we watch the emergence of splendorous sugar plantations built on the backs of slaves; the bloody and victorious uprising in Haiti in 1800; and in modern times, the spread of the Rastafarian religion, the mass exodus from Cuba following the revolution and the general discontent of Caribbean nationales. Sprinkled throughout are fascinating portraits of historical heroes as they struggle against political, economic and racial oppression.
In Caribbean, James A. Michener's fascinating blend of fact and fiction brings to life the compelling, unforgettable story of a land in search of its destiny.
