Descrizione

Stretching in a vast semicircle, from Florida to the tip of South America, lies the archipelago known as the West Indies. With marvelous climate, their shores washed by the bluest of blue seas, ever swept by the re freshing trade winds, luxuriant beyond words, inexpressibly beautiful, and varying in character from awe-inspiring, rugged masses of mile-high mountains to low-lying sandy cays, the West Indies afford interests and attractions to suit every taste. N 0 two are alike; each possesses an individual ity, a charm, a fascination all its own. If you seek quiet and rest, there are spots in these lovely isles where time has stood still for centuries; if fond of history and memories of the brave and bloody deeds of the past, you will find interest a plenty in the Antilles. Here was the cradle of European civilization in the New World; here was the haunt of pirate and buccaneer; here the great nations of Europe struggled for supremacy through centuries, and here are buildings, scenes.
