This map is designed to appeal to passengers on Caribbean cruises, but should also be of interest to those exploring the Caribbean in other ways. The map includes the adjacent mainland areas of North, Central and South America at a scale of 1:4000000. On the reverse side, there is an enlarged map of the Leeward and Windward Islands at a scale of 1:1100000. Special features include a timeline charting the region's history, from its discovery by Columbus in 1492 to the present day, and illustrated biographical notes on some 22 notable explorers, rulers, writers, artists and others who have influenced the region's history and development. Various other aspects of the Caribbean's history and geography are discussed, from slavery and sugar cane production to hurricanes, volcanic eruptions and Rastafarianism. There is also a substantial section on the region's wildlife and plants and thumbnail descriptions of the most important islands and their visitor attractions.
