A History of the Bahamas Hardcover – 1962. by Michael Craton (Author). This book is good, but not what I had expected it to be. Definitely not a page turner, but does contain a lot of great facts about the Bahamian islands. One person found this helpful.
This book was begun with a secret fear that the chief problem would be the scarcity of material. Moreover, in the Bahamas it is difficult to be impartial. The islands are not innocent of factions, each with its favourite myths. Now, four busy years later, it can truthfully be said that the reverse has been the case. Not that the exploration of the shelves of books and mounds of documents has been an easy task. Bahamian historiography is beset by peculiar hazards. Perhaps, then, it is not surprising that this is the first general history to be published. Brief synopses, of varying degrees of inaccuracy, have appeared in several guide-books; but longer works seem to have been doomed in embryo.

Book by Craton, Michael. Craton's "History of the Bahamas" is a nice, compact little history of an important country in its own right, as well as being one of America's closest neighbors. He begins with the world of the planters and settlers - a nice, small-knit world of plutocrats - and tells of the Bahamas' evolution into what it is today - a small but relatively prosperous tourist and service-driven nation.
