The Portuguese visited the island in 1536, but they left it unclaimed, an English ship, the Olive Blossom, arrived in Barbados in 1625, its men took possession of it in the name of King James I. In 1627, the first permanent settlers arrived from England, and it became an English, in 1966, Barbados became an independent state and Commonwealth realm with the British.

The island of Barbados is the central character is this epic poem, which combines narrative development, historical insight, and traditional folk sounds to tell the story of the island from the time of early Amerindians to the present day. Anthony Kellman invents his own Tuk verse forms that include the three-line tercet verse form, rhymed couplets in tetrameter, and rhythmic patterns of the snare drum. These provide a cadence to each section of the poem, whose sound is organic to the people and cultures being described. Legendary figures including indigenous leader Samuel Jackman Prescod and invented characters provide windows into the polarizing and uniting issues in the nation's history and illustrate the suffering and achievement of Barbados's known and unknown heroes.
