The Caribbean is difficult to map as an entity. It consists of vast amounts of water with dozens of micro-level islands. Last year, ITMB introduced the islands of the Western Caribbean (essentially, Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas). Now we are completing the area with the release of this book atlas, covering the eastern and southern island countries. Traditionally, these were called the Leeward and Windward Islands, but we feel that the term Eastern Caribbean is more commonly used by cruise ships and we made up the name South to include Trinidad/Tobago and the Dutch colonies of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. The list of islands included in this atlas is lengthy and includes Barbados, Grenada,Guadeloupe/Martinique, St. Kitts/Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and both sets of Virgin Islands, in detail. Like its counterpart, this atlas would be an excellent travel companion for anyone cruising the Caribbean (on a huge liner or in a yacht). It has 160 pages of maps and includes 18 town plans. This is definitely the most detailed mapping of the world in existence.
