Totally magical book about growing up in the 60s on a small island (population about 8,000) and an even smaller cay (population, just the family).

This is possibly the ultimate Caribbean book of its time. It is beautifully-written with wonderful photographs and a real feeling of what life was really like. The author is a very talented writer and I feel that if the book had a professional editor it might be a bestseller among travel books.
