A Caribbean Sense of Life

If you go back a few blogs you'll find a brief description of Rhonda King's book. I haven't seen a copy yet because the one I was sceduled to review isn't here any more. Rhonda showed it to Ralph Gonsalves, our Prime Minister, just before he went to the summit meeting in Trinidad and he took all her copies with him. Chavez got some publicity by giving a book to Barack Obama during a session, but evidently Dr. Gonsalves was more discrete and gave Obama a copy of "A Caribbean Sense of Life" quietly. He also gave a copy to the Prime Minister of Trinidad and ordered another dozen copies to give away on his visit to Europe. At least some of the World's prominent people will learn about the Caribbean in general and St. Vincent in particular.
