Synopsis

Makers of the Caribbean by James Ferguson

Makers of the Caribbean introduces young readers to the lives, ideas, exploits and achievements of a selection of personalities who in their individual styles have helped to 'make' the Caribbean we know today. Organized around ten selected themes, the book recognizes the contributions of Freedom Fighters, Politicians, Visionaries and Intellectuals, Writers and Performers, Artists, Musicians and Sports people from the English, French and Spanish-speaking islands of the Caribbean. The book is written in a clear and accessible style and the text is enhanced by the inclusion of portraits and other photographs that will help put faces to what were previously, only names for many readers. A selected bibliography is also included to guide readers who will undoubtedly wish to learn more about their respective heroes. This introductory biography is intended not only to inform and educate, but to inspire the young people of the region with positive role models seen through the lives, achievements, brilliance, and resilience of these 'Makers of the Caribbean'.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
