Book Description Vintage. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, cover is different to the one on Amazon, 256 pages. THE WEATHER PROPHET is a much-needed book, the first account of this fascinating and culturally complex region of the world since Patrick Leigh Fermor's THE TRAVELLER'S TREE in the 1950s. Lucretia Stewart travelled from Trinidad to Granada, The French Antilles to Antigua, St Vincent to St Kitts. She rode in a 'Discotaxi', shuddering with amplified bass; she danced and drank rum punch and took part in the collective euphoria of carnival. She looked at the impact of tourism on the islands, and myths and legacies of colonialism. As a white woman, she brings a unique perspective to bear on the area, candidly discussing the effect that her travels had on her views about sexuality. Bookseller Inventory # 9344
