'A vivid and affectionate account of the country. The book is intelligent, readable and humourous.' - THE TIMES 'Humour and honesty shine through with the intensity of the Georgetown sun.' - EVENING NEWS 1988 marked the 150th anniversary of the emancipation of the African slaves in Guyana, for in 1838 the great wrong that had been done to them was finally righted. 1838 also saw the arrival in Guyana of the first East Indians who came as indentured labourers to work on the sugar plantations. The descendants of these two groups, African and East Indian, now make up eighty per cent of the Guyanese people. In celebration of the anniversary, the author published an account of her two-year stay in Guyana in the 1960s, revealing some fascinating insights into the multi-racial society.
