Years Of High Hopes: A Portrait Of British Guiana, 1952-1956 From An American Family's Letters Home: Paperback / softback

Edited by Dorothy Irwin

Description

This startlingly detailed depiction of life in the capital city of Georgetown, British Guiana (now Guyana), sheds light on a seminal period of the colony s push toward nationhood.

Evoking a time when letters were still the sole form of overseas communication, the book compiles the personal correspondence mailed to the United States by a young American couple during the three and a half years they made their home in Georgetown.
