9780812974928: Caribbean: A Novel

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.

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.

From the Inside Flap:
