Far from the fantasy world of luxurious plantations and colonial mansions, The Last Colonials gives a rare insight into the lives of white settlers in Jamaica. Peta Gay Jensen's lively narrative tells the story of her ancestors, their early commitment to their new country and the challenges that they faced when attempting to integrate fully into Jamaican culture. A vivid portrait of post-slavery Jamaica, the book gives a unique insight into imperialism in the New World and the complexity of a colonial society moving towards independence.
