Publisher Comments:

The chosen place is Bourneville, a remote, devastated part of a Caribbean island; the timeless people are its inhabitants--black, poor, inextricably linked to their past enslavement. When the advance team for an ambitious American research project arrives, the tense, ambivalent relationships that evolve — between natives and foreigners, blacks and whites, haves and have-nots — keenly dramatize the vicissitudes of power.

Very absorbing and interesting book on life in West Indies and the conflux of American researchers and the culture of poverty. Extremely descriptive of setting and characters and very powerful male, female, Black, White characters. Maybe a bit long, but fascinating!
