Erica's Spicy Book

A Visually Attractive Journey to St. Vincent and the Grenadines with Erica

Author Erica McIntosh invites readers to visit her beautiful paradise islands in this coffee table book of magnificent sceneries, amazing unique places and pictures of success. A Journey with Erica to St. Vincent and the Grenadines visually introduces Erica, her picturesque homeland and her life commitment to her country, her business "Erica's Country Style", and most importantly to her family and friends.

Author Erica McIntosh, owner and CEO of Erica's Country Style, presents her agro-based business, which was established in 1989. Through her pictures, she displays Erica's Country Style's range of twenty-two products, her factory, the produce she uses, some of the local, regional, and international trade shows she attended, and more.

This book also serves as a travelogue of sorts as it offers the breathtaking views, landscapes, and panoramas of the archipelago of small islands located in the Eastern Caribbean, South of St. Lucia, West of Barbados, and North of Grenada - St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

St. Vincent being an agricultural-based island which is very rich in volcanic soil, its produce has been a great main source of exports. With its captivating, exotic, incomparable islands - people and place - there's no doubt why tourism has also taken center stage.

A Journey with Erica to St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a mesmeric collection of not just vividly captured pictures of the islands, but of the well-earned success of both the people and the place.
