Carib Indian warrior/cannibal is the first novel written about this incredible tribe of extinct Indians. It begins on a 16th century night as an old Carib instructs five young boys on top a mountain near their village on Dominica Island - the 2010 location of the last descendants of this tribe. From him they will learn many tales of past battles and the courage of the warriors who fought in them. Two that stand out will be the Carib Chief Ahameke, and his foe Baracoraima, an Arawak Chief. The boys and also the readers will understand the terror experienced as the Spaniards invaded their villages along the South American coast. Ahameke intuitively understood that to battle these men who arrived in boats larger than his village, he must develop new tactics. One that left both the Arawak and all Europeans with an indelible mental imprint was cannibalism. Ahameke's young son and a few child-warriors attack Baracoraima as he and several of his wives paddle toward Venezuela in a dugout from their home village on Trinidad. The battle at sea between them and the larger-than-life Arawak elevates Baracoraima to god-like status among his people.
