Pursuit of Paradise : Memoir of a Bahama Mama
by Georgene S. Dreishpoon




Overview -
In l967, when Georgene Dreishpoon and her husband Irving read a National Geographic article about the Bahamas, a mental seed was planted that would sprout seven years later when they embarked on an unforgettable and magical ferry ride to the island of Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas.

In her fascinating memoir, Pursuit of Paradise, Dreishpoon shares her experiences as a member of an American family who sought a fishing retreat in the Bahamas and, in the process, discovered lifelong friendships and ultimately faced the fact that even in paradise, the realities of life lurk in the background. For sixty days a year, the Dreishpoons left their life in America and lived on an island that captured their imaginations and their souls. Through entertaining anecdotes, Dreishpoon provides a glimpse into how her family immersed themselves in a new culture, learned to communicate with local inhabitants, and acquired a taste for new food--all while cherishing their time together as they experienced a new adventure.

Pursuit of Paradise chronicles nearly twenty-five years of amazing stories of one family's extraordinary experiences on a beautiful Bahamian island that affected their philosophy of living and loving forever.
