The following effort is a remarkably entertaining collection of insight on Caribbean life, from a handful of famous authors, musicians, gamblers, and adventurous fools. Along with the best quotes from my entire “The Road To Key West” series, this is really a banquet of memories, in which you will discover adventure and wisdom with short bursts of truth and humor. The 70s and 80s are very much alive in this book! It’s damned near as definitive a collection of clever thoughts as you find anywhere, as well as offering extraordinary island-hopping insights by the remarkable Rastaman, Rufus. So just lose yourself for a bit. Slip away from the present and slide into the past — nod your head and smile, and laugh for a while.

But folks like us, we collect moments, and they turn into stories, and when it's all said and done, the person with the most stories wins…"
Sundance had taken to reading the Bible, given to him by one of those door-to-door religious salesmen. He realized he liked the book — lots of cliffhanger situations, and lots of smiting or smoting going on. David smote the Philistines, the Lord smote the Egyptians, Moses smote the Amorites, Chedorlaomer smote the Rephains, and Balaam smote somebody's ass (although it was unclear whose ass that was). Sundance liked smoting. There was a sense of retribution and finality about smoting that really pushed his buttons…
