5th Edition. From the cover: “To the casual visitor Santa Marta is a sub-tropical paradise, a small sister of Jamaica and Bermuda; an island, unmentioned in the colour splashed brochures of travel agents: an island where the sun shines throughout the year on the sandy beaches of innumerable coves, on the cane-fields and the coconut plantations, on the shingled huts of the peasant villages and the fine houses of the white planters handed down, through generation after generation, from the Sugar Barons of a past century. But this was not how the newspaper columnist, Bradshaw, saw it when he arrived. Bradshaw found Santa Marta a smouldering volcano.”
