Book Synopsis
Tales from the Caribbean, written by John Stark — a collection of lively tales about the people who live on sailboats and party on the sandy beaches of the Virgin Islands: charter boat captains, yacht racers, spear fishers, and those who know how to take fast boats from port to port under a veil of secrecy. These stories tell of buried pirate treasure, gypsy fortune tellers, a young woman who races yachts, a politically-astute coal mine operator from eastern Kentucky, a renegade monk living with a bevy of beautiful former prostitutes from Amsterdam, and a skillful sea captain named Neil, who sails through a storm at the end with a friend from Waynedale (a gentleman known simply as “the Pirate”). The author of these tales, John Stark (the Pirate), who sailed the Caribbean himself back in the 1970’s and 80’s, eventually retired from the sea after his last sailing yacht was sunk in a hurricane. He originally wrote these stories as a series of newspaper columns for the Waynedale News.
