Remnants of Conquest

Twelve years after Jean Rhys's visit, it was from Elma Napier's house that Patrick Leigh Fermor set out to visit the Caribs. Fermor's account of his visit to the Carib Reserve was published in the Geographical Magazine in 1950, and later the same year, in a slightly longer version, it formed chapter five of his The Traveller's Tree, the best-known of all travel-books about the Caribbean, and the one which sets the terms for post-war descriptions of the Caribs. For those reasons it is given some detailed consideration here as a way of introducing the main themes of this chapter, which are then pursued via rather briefer references to more recent travel writers. The Traveller's Tree has become the conduit through which the old colonial verities have passed into contemporary accounts.
