A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
Lyrics from As Time Goes By in Casablanca
The tussle between these forces is at the heart of a new book written by Chuck Ball. He lived on the island from 2004 to 2007 and saw the boom and bust of the real estate and construction market. He worked construction, helping to build eco-cabins at Maho and Concordia.
His book is Mingo's Cave. "The central theme of the story is the battle between over development and saving a pristine island environment," Ball explained.
One person has reviewed it on Amazon, giving it a five star rating. "Action, adventure and hidden treasure on a tropical island. Kind of 'Indiana Jones' meets 'Treasure Island'. Enjoyed learning more about the US Virgin Islands and another way of life. A Hollywood ending but that was ok..nice, entertaining read. "
Available on Amazon, it's both an e-book and an audio book. You can download and listen to it on your iPod, iPad, Zune, PC, Mac and or/ read it on whichever device you prefer. The price is $3.99.
