A History of St. Kitts

I'm enjoying A History of St. Kitts: The Sweet Trade, by Vincent K. Hubbard, published by Macmillan Caribbean, 2002 (http://www.macmillan-caribbean.com). It's only 150 pages but is footnoted and has a good index but is easy/fascinating reading. It has given me a sense of the history and problems over time and a better feeling for how St. Kitts fits into the Caribbean world.

I have found the best prices for books to be at AbeBooks.com, a clearing house for booksellers around the world.

Here is the search for this book...

I check Amazon.com first, then AbeBooks... to me these are the two primary sources for the best prices on ANY category of books.

There's a great engine (free) that searches all the used book stores and I often end up ordering from AbeBooks but there are a couple others, equally as good
