Trinidad and Tobago

by Alex Smailes, Jeremy Taylor

Trinidad and Tobago Synopsis

This captivating photographic narrative is structured along four major themes of the islands' existence: the colourful, hot, and heady annual celebration of the carnival; the people and their forging of new identities with which to meet present and future challenges; and the islands unique display of land and the water environments, which give rise to an exuberant and exciting flora and fauna in a wide variety of habitats. The stunning photographs are complemented by a valuable introduction to the islands' history, answering such questions as why Caribbean Carnival began in Trinidad and not on other Caribbean islands, and why Latvians hold nostalgic conferences in Tobago.
