Another great selection from Armadillo Island’s collection of books for the beach and boat, Wind From the Carolinas is another of Jimmy Buffet’s favorite books. (As is Don’t Stop The Carnival –he worked on having that one produced as a play or movie or something …Disney ride?)
Set against the exotic background of the Bahama Islands, it’s the saga of wealthy, aristocratic families from the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia who, following the American Revolution, fled the South for the Bahamas, where they remained loyal to England.
It’ll remind you a little of Michener. But more satisfying story-telling. And more gratifying island flavor.
