<p>A brilliant look at colonialism and its effects in Antigua--by the author of <i>Annie John</i></p><p><i>"If you go to Antigua as a tourist, this is what you will see. If you come by aeroplane, you will land at the V. C. Bird International Airport. Vere Cornwall (V. C.) Bird is the Prime Minister of Antigua. You may be the sort of tourist who would wonder why a Prime Minister would want an airport named after him--why not a school, why not a hospital, why not some great public monument. You are a tourist and you have not yet seen . . ."</i></p><p>So begins Jamaica Kincaid's expansive essay, which shows us what we have not yet seen of the ten-by-twelve-mile island in the British West Indies where she grew up.</p><p>Lyrical, sardonic, and forthright by turns, in a Swiftian mode, <i>A Small Place</i> cannot help but amplify our vision of one small place and all that it signifies.</p>

<p>As a first-hand account of the weird mysteries and horrors of voodoo, <em>Tell My Horse</em> is an invaluable resource and fascinating guide. Based on Zora Neale Hurston's personal experiences in Haiti and Jamaica, where she participated as an initiate rather than just an observer of voodoo practices during her visits in the 1930s, this travelogue into a dark world paints a vividly authentic picture of ceremonies and customs and superstitions of great cultural interest.</p>

<p>This is the Tenth and last Edition of the popular directions for sailing south to the Bahamas and the Caribbean.</p><br /><p>For more than twenty years Van Sant repeatedly surveyed nearly 200 anchorages between Florida and South America. He racked up well over 80,000 sea miles doing it, mostly single-handed. Why? You鈥檒l find some interesting answers in his book of stories, <i>Margarita Cat</i>, but es顱sentially, he did it because he <i>liked</i> doing it.</p><br /><p>Sailing up and down the chain of islands so much and so often, he got to looking for shorter and easier ways to navigate between each link in the chain, and he kept refining detailed nav plans for every leg.</p> <br /><p>He has systematically taken the thorns out of the route they used to call the <i>Thorny Path</i>. For example, he exploits the calming effects on wind and sea which result from land cooling on each side of an inter-island passage. Applying his many methods, both sail and power can make safe, comfortable and pleasant progress even against normally impenetrable trade winds and seas.</p> <br /><p><i>Passages South</i> offers an illustrated manual of instruction for specific passages and harbors down islands as well as a cruising guide for the Greater Antilles islands of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico. It has sailed aboard tens of thousands of boats passaging between the Americas. It should sail with you too.</p>
