Underpinned by common Jamaican themes, 'A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale' tells the story of a young man intent on saving an aspect of his heritage that is dying, the storytelling. He is heavily influenced by his father's skill at relating these stories. When the family migrates, be comes face to face with the possibility of losing this part of his heritage forever. By merging these takes with the story of this young man, Burford skilfully creates a supernatural synthesis which captures and tantalizes the reader. #LiveInspired #HeritageWeek2017

#OnOurShelves Beautiful Jamaica presents Jamaica in the richness of its love, the magnetism of its charm and the vitality of its people. We carry on the vision of Evon Blake, the originator of this book, of presenting Jamaica in a manner worthy of a country that Evon eloquently described as thus: β€œThere’s no place on earth as lovely as Jamaica; no people more wonderful and hospitable than Jamaicans. Jamaica is God’s Little Country. #LiveInspired #Bookophilia #Jamaica #Kingston
