Jamaica: Absolutely by Arif Ali


Jamaica: Absolutely by Arif Ali

When Columbus arrived in the Caribbean and beheld the palm-fringed beaches and lush, forested mountains of Jamaica, he described it as the fairest isle he had ever seen. But Jamaica is so much more than just its scenery. It's a rich diversity of cultures and traditions, a feast for the senses. Illustrated with more than 200 photographic images, Jamaica: Absolutely looks beyond the beaches to give readers an insight into the country of Rasta and reggae, rum and rhythm, jerk and jazz, coffee and calypso. Paperback edition.
