Sailor's Guide to the Windward Islands, Chris Doyle

With plenty of pictures, it will show you exactly where we will anchor and what you can do ashore.

Coral Reefs Caribbean and Florida, Eugene H. Kaplan

illustrations, this guide provides quick and easy visual identification of fishes, mollusks, sponges,
shrimps, lobsters, crabs, and much more of the fauna found on the coral reefs of Saint Lucia.
Birds of the West Indies, James Bond
Descriptions of more than 400 species of birds found in the islands of the West Indies include local
names of birds, notes on migrants and winter residents - as well as birds that breed there - and voice,
habitat, and range information. More than 340 illustrations aid in identification.
The Bounty, Derek Walcott
St. Lucia is a small island, but it has already two
Nobel laureates. Poet Derek Walcott is the most famous one and the central park in the Capital is named
after him. In The Bounty, Walcott takes the 1787 arrival of that ill-fated British ship on Caribbean
shores as the starting point for a mediation on life, art, and identity. This book contains a haunting
series of poems evoking the poet's native ground, the island of St. Lucia. The power and beauty of
Walcott's lyric have never been more fully in evidence.
Caribbean, James A. Michener
Author James A. Michener called Marigot Bay "the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean", and he certainly
has a way with words we won't argue with. We pay him a tribute here and recommend his excellent book
for your vacation in St. Lucia. Caribbean is a wonderful epic which spans over centuries detailing
the marvelous history of our region. All the passion and power of the Caribbean are captured in
magnificent Michener style.
Caribbean Party (music CD)
Close your eyes and think of St. Lucia. Even if you've
never been there, some images will probably be conjured by your imagination: Hot sun, blue sea,
languid beaches, spicy food, green jungle...and music. Caribbean music has some of the most
uplifting and irresistible sounds in the world.
