Overview

The Caribbean, or Spanish Main, has been home to Indians, pirates, explorers, divers, and treasure hunters. One island in particular, lying in the western Caribbean, has a rich history involving all of them. This is the story of that island. “ Caribbean Island” is historical fiction. Each chapter is based on a true incident. When Columbus actually visited the island on his fourth and last voyage to the new world he found Maya in a canoe longer than his flagship.

The Maya had been holding ceremonies for centuries before Columbus in caves found on the island. Their artifacts have been discovered in the last few decades. English and Spanish pirates (which are which depends on your point of view) fought over the island for centuries. Roatan changed hands many times due to their battles.

This is their story, starting with Columbus, and this is the story of the island, Guanaja.
