As a young man, Douglas Pyle sailed his small boat throughout the Caribbean, ostensibly to measure, photograph and describe indigenous workboats. In this book, he does much more. "Clean, Sweet Wind" is a lyrical evocation of a place and time, the Lesser Antilles from Grenada to the Virgin Islands around 1970. Before the tourist boom, life in the Caribbean revolved around boats and the communities that built them. Through these stories of boatbuilders and fishermen we glimpse a society as vivid as the aquamarine waters of its reefs and the patched sails of its graceful fishing boats and interisland traders.
