A journey through Jamaica from Kingston to Saint Ann’s Bay on the north coast reveals the bountiful nature of the island, once described by the plundering Christopher Columbus as the ‘fairest isle that eyes ever beheld’. For a Jamaican in the late 60’s, travelling the well-worn roads in a minibus might well have been a joy for the eyes, but was also a test of the will, as the minibuses were usually packed like ‘sardine-can’ since the drivers earned on commission. It was by these means that a young and aspiring writer, Phillip Fullwood, would travel regularly from Kingston to reach Saint Ann’s Bay, selling literature printed in London, getting a few cents for each publication sold.
