Description

In our minds the Caribbean is the embodiment of paradise -crystal blue waters, magical coral reefs and lush tropical forests. Yet behind its tranquil beauty, the Caribbean conceals many dark and mysterious secrets. Its volcanic nature -both destructive and creative, powerful hurricanes and tidal waves, and its rich cultural past have all left their marks, carved into the character of the individual islands.Beautiful photography brings the islands to life in this book- fluorescent hummingbirds buzz past, scarlet ibis fill the sky, fearsome Cuban crocodiles patrol the waters and 70,000 flamingos dance in an unrivalled wildlife spectacle.The Caribbean is an area we may feel we know, but even today it is still a place of wonder and discovery, with new locations and remarkable stories to explore.
