Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.

ABOUT THIS BOOK This early 70's Saga is about a young man's remarkable experiences of flying private aircraft across the USA, several Caribbean Islands , and Mexico, all before his 21st birthday. His father's desire to learn to fly an airplane began as a 10 year old in the Texas Panhandle. His father had to quit school & formal education to survive by working in America's Great Depression of the 1930's. Rocky Don Stone was taught to pilot a helicopter at the age of 16 by his father's friend, Fred, before he'd ever been in an airplane. On a whim, he sought a way to fly a sea plane in San Juan Puerto Rico at the age of 19, in 1970, rather than return to Lubbock, Texas, his home town. His life changes dramatically over a two year period, including befriending Bob Marley in Kinston, Jamaica. They smoked some ganja. Later, Rocky Don became a popular topic because or an affair in Mazatlan, Mexico with a famous Cougar actress, Nina Colta. A 'come-on' line he originated to meet an Islander girl in Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas of the U.S. Virgin Islands, catapults Rocky Don's Life far beyond his expectations, good and bad?. One character is a woman who said she was one of a set of invitro-quadruplets that all look alike, but are each of a different Race, who, in 1971, was 36 years old. The story includes some interesting Meso-American and Historical facts. Learn about why the Cayman Islands are so special, about Jamaica's lost Buccaneer Island named Port Royal (1693).

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK Published in 1970, Islands in the Stream is the first of Ernest Hemingways posthumous novels. The novel was lightly edited by his widow, Mary Hemingway, and his publisher, Charles Scribner, Jr. Mary carefully points out in a note that opens the book, Beyond the routine chores of correcting spelling and punctuation, we made some cuts in the manuscript, feeling that Ernest would have surely made them himself. Hemingway began work on this massive project in 1945. The pages he wrote from then until his death in 1961 became several different novels, some posthumous, some published before his death. All are loosely connected in that they were worked on concurrently, and at times, part of the same work. Pieces were cut here and there to provide material for other books, and when finished, he produced enough text for four novels: Old Man, Islands, Across the River and into the Trees, and The Garden of Eden. MEET THE AUTHOR Ben Mitchell-Lewis is a resident of New Hampshire, but tries to spend as much time as possible traveling around New England, the country, and the world. He is a graduate of Colby College and is slowly cracking into the freelance writing game. Ben likes to get outside in any capacity (but especially to rock climb or ski), and travel/adventure writing is his favorite genre, though classic American novels are hard to beat. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The novels protagonist is Thomas Hudson, a world famous painter. As the book opens with Part I: Bimini, the reader is introduced to Hudson and his house set on a hill in Bimini, an island in the Bahamas. The house is as much a character as Hudson, and the whole of Part I revolves around the house, with brief interludes at bars, docks, and aboard a cabin cruiser equipped for lengthy days of fishing and exploring. After an initial introduction to Hudson, the reader is familiarized with his habits, his daily life, his routines, and his staff, especially Eddy a constant companion, a good fisherman, and very attentive to Hudsons needsl. Hudson has several others always at hand to cook, clean, and mix drinks, the same people that accompany him fishing and help take care of his children. For Bimini is really about Hudsons relationship with his children the three boys, Tom, David, and Andrew, arrive in Bimini for a vacation with their father shortly after the books opening. Before they arrive, Roger Davis is brought in. He is an old, dear friend of Hudsons, a fellow expatriate, and plays a pivotal role in the rest of Part I. While Hudson and Davis drink and carouse in the days before the boys visit, Roger gets into a heated fight with a wealthy man from New York on the docks. The events of that evening are quite trying for Davis and Hudson, and they retreat to the hilltop house to sleep it off and wait for the boys. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Islanders in the Stream A History of the Bahamian People

Divided into three sections, this volume covers the period from aboriginal times to the end of formal slavery in 1838.

From two leading historians of Bahamian history comes this groundbreaking work on a unique archipelagic nation. Islanders in the Stream is not only the first comprehensive chronicle of the Bahamian people, it is also the first work of its kind and scale for any Caribbean nation. This comprehensive volume details the full, extraordinary history of all the people who have ever inhabited the islands and explains the evolution of a Bahamian national identity within the framework of neighboring territories in similar circumstances. Divided into three sections, this volume covers the period from aboriginal times to the end of formal slavery in 1838. The first part includes authoritative accounts of Columbus’s first landfall in the New World on San Salvador island, his voyage through the Bahamas, and the ensuing disastrous collision of European and native Arawak cultures. Covering the islands’ initial settlement, the second section ranges from the initial European incursions and the first English settlements through the lawless era of pirate misrule to Britain’s official takeover and development of the colony in the eighteenth century. The third, and largest, section offers a full analysis of Bahamian slave society through the great influx of Empire Loyalists and their slaves at the end of the American Revolution to the purported achievement of full freedom for the slaves in 1838. This work is both a pioneering social history and a richly illustrated narrative modifying previous Eurocentric interpretations of the islands’ early history. Written to appeal to Bahamians as well as all those interested in Caribbean history, Islanders in the Stream looks at the islands and their people in their fullest contexts, constituting not just the most thorough view of Bahamian history to date but a major contribution to Caribbean historiography.
