Big Trees get their own book

If you have been to Cinnamon Bay, you have seen a huge old
kapok tree near the beach and the archeological dig.  That tree is
nothing compared to lots of other trees in the territory, and which are
chronicled in a new book, Remarkable Big Trees in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Meeting Place Trees, Grave Marker Trees, Jumbie Trees, Spirit Trees,
and Tree Shrines are a few of the trees explained by author Robert
Nicholls, a professor at the University of the Virgin Islands. One of the biggest trees in the VI, he wrote, was a locust tree at Caneel Bay.
