Item description for Surinam - Switi Sranan by Toon Fey...

Surinam is a remarkable country for many reasons. It is a multi-faceted society: with less than half a million inhabitants, the country is home to a number of population groups. Surinam is a fascinating mosaic of cultures, lifestyles and much beside. About three-quarters of the country is tropical rainforest. The Central Surinam Nature Reserve is the largest protected rainforest in the world, with unimaginable natural wealth. Wide rivers, rapids and waterfalls create an earthly Eden.

The text in "Surinam -- Switi Sranan" is concise, yet highly informative. The first part of the book deals with the nature and landscape of Surinam, followed by its history from colony to republic and an overview of the population groups and their cultures. Surinam is a visual feast and plenty of room has been left for illustrations. Some of these, provided by the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam, are published here for the first time. For Surinamese, Surinam -- Switi Sranan will be a celebration of their history. It also provides an interesting overview of Surinam and its history for the Dutch of Surinamese descent. This book will convince anybody interested in Surinam --including eco-tourists -- that a visit to Switi Sranan is well worth the effort.

This book really shows what Surinam is about. It's people, natural richness and history are all displayed with beautiful pictures. Having lived there for a couple of months I've bought the book to keep my memories alive. Right now, it's lying next to my couch and I occasionally pick it up, just to browse and the memories come back instantly!
