Michener uses his tried & true formula here on the Caribbean, tracing the people and history of the region from the 1300s through the present day. The technique allows him to present an overview of a region's impact -- and in fact, the connections drawn between 17th century Caribbean and 21st century United States are probably the most interesting portion of the novel. The drawback is that no one period is allowed enough time on stage to fully develop the characters.
