How did you know that? It's an age-old question.

Our answer: I read it in a book.

Whether you are looking for self-enrichment, something to read to learn more about where your travels will take you, or something to read on your charter, we have a few selections to offer from our personal library.



Don’t Stop the Carnival

By Herman Wouk

Middle-aged New York City press agent Norman Paperman escapes the dreary rat race of city life and heads to the Caribbean to reinvent himself as an innkeeper. The book is thought to be based on Wouk’s personal experiences as a hotel manager on St. Thomas in the 1960s. Singer Jimmy Buffet collaborated with Wouk to create a musical adaptation of the book in the late 1990s.



The Islands Time Forgot: Exploring the South Pacific Under Sail

By Graham Morse

Following in the wake of explorers like Captain Cook, author Graham Morse decides to sail the South Pacific with his wife Janet in 2007. He chronicles their voyage as they examine Polynesian culture, meet memorable characters, swim with sharks, and discover that life hasn’t changed all that much in the past 200 years for those living on these remote, exotic islands.



Croatia: A Nation Forged in War

By Marcus Tanner

By Tristan Jones

The story begins on the Kra Peninsula, which separates the Andaman Sea from the Gulf of Thailand.
