    1. Although his writing his rather sexist and racist (as is usual for this time), Ligon provides an interesting account of early colonial Barbados and the sugar plantations. Of course, others have argued that Ligion is not trying to be racist, but rather engages with the ideas of racism in this book in ways that were acceptable for this time. In any case, he does give intriguing descriptions of the flora, fauna, and people on Barbados in the seventeenth century.


    2. the first account of the island of barbados is a new edition editing by Karen Ordahl Kupperman of the original 1657. ligon discusses life on the island as the sugar culture is just getting started; describing masters and slaves at work and rest, the various flora and fauna to be found, illness, housing, consumption of food, treatment of servants and a full survey of sugar making in all of its grand detail. ligon is a very interesting fellow who of his own accord and being a royalist at the time [...]


    3. Another completely unrateable book. It's interesting from a historical perspective in the sense of what an English explorer found important on a visit to Barbados before it became a large sugar producer. It would be a good book to read in tandem with other Caribbean works from this period.
