Format: Paperback
The book is a good description of the people that inhabited the islands when Columbus arrived. He does a great job describing the different peoples (Taino's, Caribes, etc.) and their differences in culture and language. As a Puerto Rican I found it informational on learning more of my non-European ancestry.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collected volume is a useful introduction to the topic. I have used it to prepare lectures on the subject for college students in the context of a broad course on maritime peoples. It is not terribly in depth, however, and most readers will want to move on to heavier works like _The Lesser Antilles in the Age of European Expansion_.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book references so many other works it might be hard to keep up, or find half of these books to read in the first place. Basically devoted to chapters each giving some broad stroke overviews on various topics and people groups and theories of migratory patterns, I think this is an excellent place to start. I would probably compliment this with some more recent works by Maximilian C. Forte for the next step of reading.

Interesting, documented reading. Recommended for historians, archeologists and people interested in Caribbean history. The different indigenous tribes and their personality are described.
