Gifted Writer, Author and Producer, Douglas Burns is elated to announce the release of his new book titled The Undaunted King Gouddaa of the Arawaks and Caribs.
This is an original tale set in a forgotten time, mixed with forbidden love, magic, and black magic. It is also mixed with the elaborate and spectacular costumes of the Bahamas native Junkanoo Festival—never before seen in such fashion. The mythical and historical adventure is centered on Gouddaa, king of the Arawak and Caribs, as he seeks out to destroy his greatest adversary—the Black Widow. His family is also thrown into disarray, as his sons and daughters rival over love and the throne. The ultimate battle begins, and love is left in silence to die.
Eddison Alric Dames was born in the Bahamas in the City of Hope Town, on the Island of Abaco in 1951. His passion for life drove him to inspirational heights and placed him amongst the Cultural Icons of the world. He published his first book of Poetry in 1995 and traveled internationally and locally promoting the cultural aspects of the Bahamas in Music, Dance, Song and Junkanoo which is the Native African Festival of the Bahamas. He spent several years in the research and development of Movies, Filming and Acting.
In 1997 the opportunity to work closely with his friend Mr. Douglas Burns resulted in the writing of this book. Douglas Burns was born in Nassau, Bahamas on March 18th, 1960. A young man who did not follow his family trade mark of Carpentry instead he was educated in over thirty three Countries around the world to become a Writer, Producer, Traveler, and educator.
Douglas married a beautiful Princess from the Far East, and then wrote the Book, years after his first born. He then took the idea of the book to his longtime friend Eddison Alrick Dames who was most impressed with the concept for the book, but it was not until one year later, the two friends decided to publish the book.
