Was hoping that I would be able to post one more island before classes start for me on Monday, however my weekend proved to be too busy.  I will not be able to post again until Spring break as I'm in classes full time and studying for a certification exam.

Note:  For the three books listed above (last three bullet points), use the WorldCat link to see if a local library near you has the books.
