The Blue Hole: A Bahamian Short Story (Paperback)
Not knowing what to say, he stood before the mysterious centuries-old captor, images of how they'd gotten themselves into this predicament running quickly through his mind. The sweltering, exhausting hike to see the blue hole, the thrill of seeing it for the first time, and the coolness of the water when they had rushed in, splashing and playing a game of hide and seek. Had it only been a few hours? It seemed like days had passed since they'd willfully ignored their parents' dire warnings in a search of summer adventure. A loud clattering shook him from his thoughts. The chief stood before him, and he contemplated his next words-knowing very well they could be his last.
Set in beautiful Andros Island in the Bahamas, The Blue Hole is the story of four young boys who stole away from the confines of their close-knit and somewhat repressive out island community to go swimming-and the harrowing experience that awaited them in the dreaded blue hole.
