This book is the first of a series of volumes of original fiction about animals and plants that behave like people, given the opportunity and the circumstances. Instincts and nature combine to weave stories that are interesting and appropriate for pre-teens to adults. Given the author's academic background in the sciences, practical experience in medicine, human behavior and nature conservancy and pure imagination, these stories are both informative and amusing. Though largely set in the Caribbean region, the themes can be applied to life anywhere on the planet.


The Caribbean In The Wider World, 1492-1992

This major textbook survey, first published in 1992, explains how the Caribbean's present geography is intimately tied to the past. The Caribbean was Europe's first colony, its landscapes transformed to produce tropical staples and its decimated aboriginal populace replaced with African slaves. As European power has waned in the Caribbean, it has been replaced by the geopolitical domination of the United States. Professor Richardson examines this colonisation and recolonisation of the Caribbean during the past half millennium, portraying a region victimised by natural hazards, soil erosion, over population and gunboat diplomacy. Most importantly, he explains the ways in which Caribbean peoples have reacted and adapted to their external influences. No other single survey of the region provides equivalent breadth - ranging from aboriginal ecologies to today's narcotic traffic - or harnesses so effectively elements of the past to illuminate the present.

From Cornwall to the Caribbean, 11-year-old ace detective Laura Marlin comes face to face with pirates, sharks, criminal masterminds and an erupting volcano in her second mystery adventure, which follows the Blue Peter award-winning first book Dead Man's Cove.

Laura cannot contain her excitement when she wins a trip to the Caribbean for herself and her uncle, Calvin Redfern. Especially when her best friend, Tariq, and her three-legged husky, Skye, accidentally find themselves on board too.

But when they dock at Antigua, they discover that Calvin Redfern has vanished, and Laura and Tariq are about to be kidnapped by the fearsome Straight A gang.

Dramatic escapes, an erupting volcano and a race against time to stop the deadly undercover 'Marine Concern' make Laura's second adventure every bit as exciting as the first.
