Excerpt from Rough Notes of a Journey Through the Wilderness, From Trinidad to Para, Brazil, by Way of the Great Cataracts of the Orinoco, Atabapo, and Rio Negro New year's eve, 1869, we lay at St. Thomas's and witnessed a curious effect in the sky a rainbow at night, caused by the moon-rays falling on a rain cloud. On New Year's morning we steamed from the harbour, the shore of which and the neighbo ing cays were still strewn with the hulks, wrecks, and other debris of the previous year's hurricane and earthquake, although now all seemed bathed in an atmosphere of undisturbed tranquillity. The Royal West India Mail ships in these latitudes are manned by blacks; it appeared quite natural to be again on the deck of the old Tamar, watching the dusky forms of the crew as they lounged or romped about the forecastle, like so many monkeys. Leaving the island of Santa Cruz on our star board quarter, we sped along against a head wind. Some time after I had turned in, I was aroused by the report of the signal-gun, fired right over the port of my cabin jumping into my Slippers, I found we had arrived Off St. Kitt's. A good many vessels lay in the roadstead and what appeared to be a town, Slept on the lowland betwixt the water and the mountainous backbone of the island, over which rolled heavy manes ofmoon-lit cloud. The night was marked by a very beautiful, but here, not uncommon phenomenon; the top of each fleecy cloud was tinged with prismatic colours as it passed the disc of the moon. Next morning the sea-girt rock called Rodonda met our View; then Montserrat; and we coasted Antigua until we came to in the lovely cove like entrance to the English harbour, with its crys talline water; there we landed mails. In the after noon, looming suddenly through a mist of luke-warm rain, we saw the forest-covered coast of Guadaloupe, and I managed, as usual, to take a few rough Sketches at any point of interest. The scenery was truly magnificent. Leaving at midnight, we proceeded to land mails at the Island of Dominica, from whence the gentle land-breeze wafted us that delightful fiagrance peculiar to the tropical forests.

Prehistoric Coastal Adaptations: The Economy and Ecology of Maritime Middle America is a compendium of research papers and treatises on Middle American people who lived within coastal habitats. The collection aims to reveal distinctive coastal adaptations and the role of Middle American people in major social transformations. The book discusses topics on the history of occupations of certain coastal sites; correlation of site location to resource procurement patterns; settlement locations and subsistence evidence in the coastal and inland habitats of Costa Rica; and the maritime adaptation and the rise of Maya civilization. The final chapter of the book also discusses the future research directions in the study of Middle American coastal people. The text will be of value to archeologists, anthropologists, historians, ethnologists, and researchers.
