Before European colonization, the Turks and Caicos Islands were inhabited by Taino and Lucayan peoples. The first recorded European sighting of the islands now known as the Turks and Caicos occurred in 1512. In the subsequent centuries, the islands were claimed by several European powers with the British Empire eventually gaining control. For many years the islands were governed indirectly through Bermuda, the Bahamas, and Jamaica.

I really enjoyed the book. I am interested in moving to TCI and I feel this gives me useful background about how fast TCI has changed and what it was like before the tourists arrived. I would have been happy to have learned those things from this book, but the book was heartbreaking as you read about this man's young life and what he had to endure. It isn't War and Peace, but it tells the story of a life well lived with dogged determination to succeed and how strong the human spirit can be.

I realize that folks at Amazon can't check all the books they sell, but perhaps a policy regarding content would be a good idea. I wanted a travel guide on the Turks and Caicos . This is nothing more than a collection of memories put to paper. NO , I did not read the whole book. I started reading it, but the level at which it is written did not intrest me. (That is as polite as I can be regarding this "book" ) I would not recommend this book.
