Cape Verde Books: Cape Verde Blues by C. W. Childs

We love finding new Cape Verde books and this new book, Cape Verde Blues by C. W. Childs gives the reader an insight into the history of the islands’ whaling trade as well as the often intricate relationships on board a vessel like the one that bears Emmanuel on his adventure.

Cape Verde Blues by C. W. Childs

The story of Emmanuel and his search for his father provides an emotional entry into a much neglected area of historical research. Through his careful handling of race and class relations, Childs produces a complex and compassionate view of these issues that you won’t necessarily find in many of the other Cape Verde books available.

Whether simply seeking adventure, or an introduction into these historical and cultural matters, you’ll find a deeply satisfying read in Cape Verde Blues.

You can grab a copy of Cape Verde Blues from Amazon (click here for the link) although it looks like you may have to settle for a Kindle version for now as the paper versions look to be out of print.

Cape Verde Books

There are quite a number of other Cape Verde books available which you may like. A quick search on shows over 4,500 books which match including of course, the usual Cape Verde travel guides from Berlitz and Bradt.
