Description
World famous entertainer and humanitarian Harry Belafonte's lovely, lyrical childhood recollection of Jamaica is a tender portrait that will easily strike a chord in anyone who feels bound to a special place. The "story" first appeared as lyrics to an engaging calypso song popularized by Mr. Belafonte. In concert with Alex Ayliffe's luminously beautiful illustrations, childhood days of sugarcane fields, shining sands, and fishermen casting their nets into glittering waters are affectionately recalled, expressing the ties of family, history, and personal experiences that make any well-loved place a home of the heart.
