BAHAMA SAGA is a chronicle of the human presence on a uniquearchipelago of the Americas. The story takes its title from a fewinvented characters and the romantic and beautiful country of seven hundredsub-tropical islands.The confetti of Bahamian islands has, at different times, been a locusfor the three races of the planet. After the original Amerindian inhabitantsperished, the Bahamas remained uninhabited for nearly 150 yearsuntil people from Bermuda - largely of English and African stock -re-settled the islands commencing in 1648. Not long afterwards many more Africans were brought to the Bahamas in bondage. Their descendants today hold the destiny of the islands in their hands.The geographical location of the Bahamas allowed the islands to play a brief, butimportant part in the history of the modern world.  The eastern islands protrude out into the Atlantic Ocean so as to make them one of the nearest partsof the Americas to Europe andit was here that an explorer from Europe madea historic landfall at what, for him at least, was a 'New World’. It was just over five hundred years agothat Christopher Columbus in 1492 ‘sailedthe ocean blue’. The islands on the western side are a mere 50 miles fromthe United States. Throughout time, events on the North American continent have had amajor affect upon the history of the Bahama Islands asthis well-written and intriguing story relates.
