The Book will soon be available for sale at the offices of the Jamaica National Heritage Trust.

The book is a "Coffee Table Book" which is the first of its kind for the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. It is rich in photographs and text covering the period from Jamaica's earliest inhabitants the Tainos, to the beginning of the present century. Artifacts and Castles which are not generally known and which are sure to excite the reader, abound.

The content is unique in that it focuses mainly on Jamaica's historic, built environment. It portrays the significant locations throughout the Island which have impacted our culture and shaped our character.
