About this book
In this acclaimed classic novel, James A. Michener sweeps readers off to the Caribbean, bringing to life the eternal allure and tumultuous history of this glittering string of islands. From the 1310 conquest of the Arawaks by cannibals to the decline of the Mayan empire, from Columbus’s arrival to buccaneer Henry Morgan’s notorious reign, from the bloody slave revolt on Haiti to the rise of Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Caribbean packs seven hundred dramatic years into a tale teeming with revolution and romance, authentic characters and thunderous destinies. Through absorbing, magnificent prose, Michener captures the essence of the islands in all of their awe-inspiring scope and wonder. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii.   Praise for Caribbean   “Michener is a master.”—Boston Herald   “A grand epic . . . [James A. Michener] sympathizes with the struggles of the region’s most oppressed, and succeeds in presenting the Caribbean in its rich diversity.”—The Plain Dealer   “Remarkable and praiseworthy . . . utterly engaging.”—The Washington Post Book World   “Even American tourists familiar with some of the serene islands will find themselves enlightened. . . . In Caribbean, there appears to be a strong aura of truth behind the storytelling.”—The New York Times

    10 wonderful Short Stories

    5/5 Jeaner5 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vampires of the Caribbean (Kindle Edition) This anthology of short stories is amazing. Who wouldn’t want to read about Vampires in the Caribbean? The authors out did themselves. Nikki Jefford’s story, “A Vampire’s Life for Me” was so much fun to read. I love this version of Fane. The story itself was so interesting and gave a little insight of what was going on in Fane’s life prior to Alaska. I feel like I got a whole other side of Fane. C. Gockel’s story “Someday My Count Will Come” starts with a bang – so much going on right away that it will suck you in. Overall the anthology of “Vampires of the Caribbean” of 10 short stories are fun, quick stories to read. I highly recommend it.

    Everything Caribbean (except pirates)

    This is one of the biggest and best Fodor books I have ever seen, and having been to 52 different countries, usually with a guidebook in hand, I’ve seen my share. This book is almost 1200 pages and covers all the countries and territories listed below. Oddly, several major Caribbean destinations, like Cuba, Haiti and the Bahamas are not included, presumably because there are dedicated guidebooks from Fodor for those locales. Instead, this book includes some hidden gems, like Montserrat, Saba, and St. Eustatius (the latter having been featured on a House Hunters episode on HGTV). Including these in this guidebook is just a nice touch.Although this book is in full color, there aren’t that many photos. The introduction pages give a lot of good information that is helpful in determining where to go in the Caribbean, and each destination chapter includes a photo, map, and a few “top reasons to visit”. All of that is helpful in deciding if a destination... 5/5 Eric Sedensky (Madison, AL, US) - See all my reviews, November 9, 2015

    Not Helpful for Dominican Republic

    3/5 Case - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Caribbean 2016 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) I bought this book to see about things to do in Dominican Republic while we are there in June. I read another review saying there were quite a few pages on Dominican republic in the book however there is nothing about activities or things to do. It is mainly about where to stay and where to eat, which was not helpful since we already booked an all inclusive resort before I purchased the book. We were hoping to find out more about excursions and activities to do. I am sure we will use the book for other trips to the Caribbean at some point but was not helpful for Dominican Republic.

    Very Helpful except for Uncoordinated Maps and Anti-Cruise Bias

    Toughest thing about using this book is the lack of coordination between the island maps and text. Attractions highlighted in bold on the map, for instance, are not highlighted for discussion in the text (some with no reference in the index.) In addition, by not graduating the font size of capitai (and larger) cities, it takes ages for a neophyte to locate them. By also not giving any kind of distances/times between attractions, it is difficult to plan a day trip and do the sites justice. I particularly did not appreciate the anti-cruise bias that was obvious throughout--especially since that is the only way many disabled people like me have the ability to travel. While, yes, it must be frustrating for an individual going to an attraction suddenly encountering a huge group of cruise passengers, critics should remember that the numbers of bodies coming from the ships are a huge economic motivator that keep many attractions viably open for all to enjoy. It would have been nice for... 4/5 charley's love - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

Corduroy in the Caribbean (Cat in hammock) Coffee Mug

cat, hammock, caribbean, tropics, mugs
Initially brought to the shelter as a stray, Corduroy was a volunteer favorite whose FIV+ status kept him at the shelter far longer than other cats. In the past, the Oakland Animal Shelter transferred FIV+ cats to rescue partners. With progressive changes in shelter policies, Corduroy made history when he became the first FIV+ cat to be adopted directly from the Oakland shelter. Though he waited a long time, Corduroy now leisurely hangs in a hammock in southern California, with a family who adores him. All proceeds from the sale of this product go to the Friends of Oakland Animal Services.
