Black and White Sands: A Bohemian Life in the Colonial Caribbean
Elma Napier (Author)
Usually delivers within 2 weeks.
DescriptionElma Napier's remarkable memoir chronicles her love affair with Dominica. It began in 1932 when she turned her back on London's high society to build a home in Calibishie, then a remote village on Dominica's north coast.
There are tales of bohemian house parties, of war and death, smugglers and servants and, above all, of stories inspired by her political life as the only woman in a colonial parliament, her love for the island's turbulent landscapes and her curiosity about the lives and culture of its people.
