Barbados : A World Apart
Imagenes Press, US, 1993 First Edition. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. PLEASE EMAIL FOR SHIPPING RATES. 132 large pages, size 11 inches tall by 10.5 inches. Profusely illustrated with coloured photographs. ' One of the brightest gems of the Caribbean, Barbados has become a tropical playground for the many thousands of tourists who visit each year.' Regrettably, all too many visitors end their vacations on this enchanted island without even beginning to learn about the unique culture and history which lie beyond its sun-kissed beaches. In Barbados, A World Apart, author-photographer Roger LaBrucherie explores not only Barbados as it is today, but the island's rich heritage as well: its pre-European beginnings, the British colonial era, the reign of "King Sugar," and the march to independence. Developed over the past two decades, the author's "documentary-book" for mat is celebrated for being as educational as it is entertaining, and would-be browsers soon find themselves reading his books from cover-to-cover! This is a stunning and insightful depiction of a complex, enchanting, and beautiful island-a book which will provide a wealth of knowledge to those who are newcomers to Barbados and which will, just as surely, bring delight to those few who are lucky enough to know this special island, this world apart, as their home '. Book - Fine [much better than Very Good] - in light blue boards with white lettering. Dust Jacket - Fine. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
