Jim Todd has produced an attractive self-published book, available in 3 formats, showcasing some of the outstanding features of the less-frequented areas of Abaco and its waters. It contains many excellent photographs, with interesting notes and observations. There are places and facts in the book that may not be known even to locals! Below are some sample pages.
Anyone who loves Abaco, its natural surroundings, its ecology and its wildlife will love this book. If this post has whetted your appetite, here are some further details:
Available exclusively on BLURB (this is the direct link)
“The Abaco Backcountry draws on the author’s extensive exploration of the area to describe a hypothetical traverse of its length in words and pictures. It is not a guidebook but an appreciation of a unique Bahamian marine ecosystem”
56 pp, available softcover ($35), Hardcover, Dustjacket ($38.99) and Hardcover, Image Wrap ($40.99)
STOP PRESS In answer to a UK query, the Blurb price is shown in $$$. When you go to the checkout, the shipping is added e.g. $10.99 to ship the PB version to the UK. You can pay by CC or Paypal. The conversion to sterling (or presumably euros) happens… by magic
- PREVIEW (15 pages)
Jim is a photographic contributor to The Delphi Club Guide to the Birds of Abaco by Keith Salvesen, available directly from Delphi (see below) or in the UK / Europe from the author (email rollingharbour.delphi [@] gmail.com). Nearly 75% of the edition has sold in just 12 months, and stocks are dwindling…
I love this photo !!!!!

Thanks Holly. It’s a fine book altogether, and a great idea to show a place from an unusual perspective – Todd uses a kayak to reach some of them! RH
