Tekkin a Waalk: Along the Miskito Coast

 
9780006545125: Tekkin a Waalk: Along the Miskito Coast

Travelling the length of the Caribbean-influenced Central American coastline from Belize, through Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama, Peter Ford tramped the still-untamed territories of the Garifuna and Miskito Indians, of pirates, guerrillas and former cannibals. In creole parlance, he was just "tekkin a waalk". Seasoned with historical accounts of the eccentric, often sad past of the Garifuna and Miskito kingdoms, tragic and hilarious in turns, and the oddities left behind by the exploitation and colonial rivalry of the imperial powers of the British "bouconiers" and "Spainyards" over the centuries, Peter Ford's travel memoir is a portrait of a people living historically, geographically and culturally on the border of two worlds.
