About the Book
“I’ve become stagnated between the desire for progress and a longing toward regression. In a land of limbo, like a dangerous situation.” Rapsheets, the Deleted Exclusions, 2016 … “Grenadians [and Kayaks] need to know the truth about the past in order to be reconciled presently and for the future.” Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report, 2006 “It is a bit ironic that the substantial potential of heritage assets on Carriacou remain unappreciated. Today, tourism has replaced cotton as Carriacou’s primary industrial product. Yet, there seems to be no credible plan for preserving and leveraging heritage asset for use in this new industrial base.” A Case for Saving Carriacou, 2011 “This land that belongs to no one. Men believe that they have dominion, but they do not. The people here only borrow it, so that there would be somewhere to rest their bones when they die.” Gudrun’s Saga
