- Jul 17, 2015 - 9:00:26 AM
Nassau, Bahamas - A high-ranking naval officer and author of
several scholarly publications is calling for the majestic waters of The
Bahamas and Turks & Caicos to be named the Lucayan Sea, declaring
that the name not only pays fitting tribute to the islands’ original
inhabitants but reflects the nature of Bahamians as a people of peace.

makes a strong and thorough argument for the naming of yet-anonymous

Americas (Outskirts Press.com). The book, available in hard copy and
online for Kindle, takes the reader on a 90-page journey from the time
