The History Of Barbados
Sir Robert Schomburgk's history of Barbados, the island that was once Britain's foremost colonial possession in the Western Hemisphere, is a massive and all-embracing study of its subject. Every aspect of the island, from climatology to zoology, is described in detail and statistical tables of various kinds are scattered throughout the book.
This classic in West Indian history gains even further interest from the period in which it was written - when just enough time had elapsed since the abolition of slavery to allow a judicious observer to give a valuable first-hand appraisal of its effects, and it is invaluable, not only for a study of the history of Barbados, but for its wealth of information about the island.
A Cherry Cola Christmas
Christmas is coming to the small town of Cherico, Mississippi, and there's no better way to prepare than with the Cherry Cola Book Club's feast of good food, good books-and good people
Cherico's newlywed librarian Maura Beth Mayhew is back from her honeymoon and she and Jeremy McShay are settling into married life. But as the holidays approach, Cherico's economy is struggling, and there's even a mysterious crime spree afoot. Maura Beth decides what the community needs is a healthy dose of Christmas cheer-which means a special meeting of the Cherry Cola Book Club...
Along with the delicious potluck offerings everyone has come to expect, Maura Beth has invited members and the public to share their most uplifting stories-and share they do. In fact, Cherico's residents infuse the gathering with so much hope and courage they just might inspire a culprit's confession, and conjure a miracle that could save the town-and Christmas
