A message from Bocas del Toro historian, entomologist, banana man, a friend of The Bocas Breeze, Clyde Stephens:
“I am pleased to present BANANA MAN: Peeling and Revealing, Life in the Tropics. The complete work was too big to publish as one volume so it was divided into a series of three books: Book 1, Book 2 and Book 3. Besides my chapters, fourteen other guest writers contributed their stories about Life in the Tropics that are found in Book 1 and Book 2. Book 3 features a banana family, the Stargardters, which records their incredible lives in Europe and how they became banana people. Book 3 also records the challenging lives of German immigrants in Bocas del Toro, Chiriqui and other parts of Panama during two World Wars. At the beginning of the book, I was honored to have Dr. Stanley Heckadon-Moreno write the foreword.
