Green To Go

I would venture to say that most of us who have done any traveling about the Caribbean have done a pretty good job of seeking out books that recount the life and times of pirates, both traditional and modern.

It is such a big part of the history of the tiny islands that dot the map that it is hard to look at a picturesque scene like Magens Bay an not picture a band of pirates hiding a tall ship in calm waters protected by the lush green hills that soften the blow of the open ocean providing white sand beaches shaded by palm trees that look as if they've been there since the beginning of time.

With the likes of Gary Buslik (A rotten person travels the Caribbean) Michael Reisig (The Road to Key West) and even the super famous (Although somewhat diluted) Hunter S. Thompson recounting different angles and perspectives of life in South Florida and the Caribbean, it’s not hard to find a book to read that takes you to the sandy shores.

But if you want a book that takes you to sandy shores, adds adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat, airplanes that will have you Googling for images, beautiful women, tobacco farms, 100 year-old sailing vessels, Rum and Romance.... Look no further than the newest offering from author J.H. Cunningham.

Green to Go is a continuation of the Buck Riley Adventure, that began in Cunningham’s book Red Right Return, that will take you from the Bahamas down the Florida Keys, across the Gulf to Mexico and beyond, flying in style beside Buck in his Grumman G-44 Widgeon and reading as fast as you can to see what will happen in the next paragraph, page and chapter.

Cunningham writes in a simple and elegant style, illustrating every stop of the journey and keeping your interest peaked with unforeseen twists and turns that only make me hope that he has the next book in this series well under way!

Pick up your copy of Green To Go at Amazon and get to it! But be forewarned, you’ll want to clear your schedule because you won’t be putting this one down any time soon!

If you missed it, you can read my review of Cunningham’s first book HERE.
