Well you will dream even more because a native of Salt Cay has decided to pen many happenings and adventurous experiences about this little island that was her home for many years. In her own words, author Patronella “Peggy” Been gives you a candid view of the kind of home life, school life, social life and religious life the people of Salt Cay enjoyed from the early 1900’s until around 1980 when changes really began to take place. Perhaps you may have never heard of the way they got food and clothes, or how communication and transportation within the family islands and the outside world seemed so impossible, making life so difficult.
