A Salty Piece
By Jimmy Buffett
"It's not on any
chart, but the tropical island of Cayo Loco is the perfect place to run away
from all your problems. If you're looking for a license to chill, come
along as cowboy Tully Mars takes his pony to the shore - on an unforgettable
Caribbean adventure as colorful and wonderfully bizarre as cocktail hour at your
favorite expatriate bar.
From a lovely
sunset sail in Punta Margarita to a wild spring-break foam party in San Pedro,
Tully encounters an assortment of treasure hunters, rock stars, sailors,
seaplane pilots, pirates, and even a ghost or two.
Waking from a
ganja buzz on he beach in Tulum, Tully can't believe his eyes when a 142-foot
schooner emerges out of the ocean mist. At its helm is Cleopatra
Highbourne, the eccentric 101-year-old sea captain who will take him to a
lighthouse on a salty piece of land that will change his life forever.
Once again, master
storyteller Jimmy Buffett weaves a mesmerizing tale that combines both humor and
emotional reflection. After all, one man's cathedral is another man's
fishing hole. And in Jimmy Buffett's world, paradise is just a state of
