by James A. Michener
The book Caribbean, is actually several stories in one book. It tells the history of the Caribbean islands through the eyes of the people who had a major effect on the archipelago. It contains all points of history from the first tribal conflicts in Cuba to the Revolutionary War to WWII to the reign of Fidel Castro.
I like this book because it has many memorable fictional characters who mingle around with historical events and people. it has detailed accounts of battles fought through letters written by the solders who fought them.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction and adventure.
