Helen of the West Indies
Guy Ellis

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" • 128 pages • color photos
ISBN 9781405066457 • paperback • $15.00

Saint Lucia is a Caribbean island which truly lives up to its travel brochure descriptions: an island of breathtaking beauty with miles of magnificent coastline, panoramic mountain views, lush vegetation and favorable climate. Its people, history, language and culture are a blend of the rich heritage of Africa, France and England. It is the home of the only drive-in volcano in the world, where the fascinating Sulphur Springs bubble.

Saint Lucia is also famous for producing two Nobel Laureates and for staging an annual Jazz Festival that has become the talk of the entire world. In addition, Saint Lucia is a tourist paradise hosting more than 700,000 visitors every year. In this comprehensive guide, updated with all new photographs, Guy Ellis provides a profile of this “Helen of the West."

A journalist for more than four decades, Guy Ellis edited the island’s leading newspaper, the Voice, for 20 years before moving on to start a newspaper of his own, The Saint Lucia Mirror. In 2003, Ellis was honored by Her Majesty the Queen as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to journalism. As one who remains in touch with every development that takes place on the island, he is well qualified to write this guide to his mother country.
