In the sunny Caribbean, bananas, coconuts, cashews, mangoes, and limes grow on trees, and some fish even seem to fly. Though the islands share a tragic past of warfare, slavery, and pirate raids, each island has a unique heritage. Poor Man s Fritters are a legacy of slavery. The molasses and brown sugar in gingerbread come from the cane fields that made the islands rich. Curry is a contribution from East India; a taste of Spain is in Christmas tembleque; and pirates and native Arawaks are remembered in the cooking method called barbecue. Capture the spirit of Caribbean cooks and artists as you toss a colorful salad with fresh fruits. Craft seashells into picture frames, and make musical instruments from dried gourds. Stencil a Jolly Roger flag, and make a scary mask out of common household materials. With a few simple ingredients, some hot peppers, and household supplies, you can cook and craft your way across the Caribbean, and find out what gives its culture so much spice.

Juliet Haines Mofford and her husband taught in a boys boarding school outside San Juan, where most of their students were native Puerto Ricans or from the U.S. Virgin Islands. With their two small children, they celebrated Three Kings Day with jibaro families in the island s remote mountains. The Moffords sailed and camped throughout the Virgin Islands, spent several months doing historical research on Barbados, and lived for a year on St. Vincent, where the author s father-in-law was born and many relatives remain, including some who appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. During months of historical research in Barbados, they even discovered a real pirate named Redlegs Greaves in their family tree! Mofford has written about the West Indies for the New York Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Montreal Gazette, and magazines such as Caribbean Beachcomber and Tropic. She and her husband have traded the tropics for a landlubber s life in New England.
