Caribbean (novel)

Résumé
Caribbean (1989) is an historical novel written by James A. Michener, which describes and explores the history of the Caribbean region from the pre-Columbian period of the native Arawak tribes until about 1990. The author mixes fact and fiction, as he notes in the foreword. For example, the story about the island of All Saints is purely fictional, though the book's map shows it as an island in the location of Saint Lucia. In researching the book, Michener traveled the Caribbean for three years and consulted over 400 books.
