KIRKUS REVIEW

 Six chapters about islands that belong to the US, each with sections on geography, history, people, and places to visit. The book gives a little history and some skimpy information about each region (e.g., ``commonwealth flower'' or ``major industries''), but is extremely repetitive. It is written in prose that could not be more stilted. Too dull for a tourist booklet and too poorly organized for an encyclopedia article, this book is neither entertaining nor useful, and its colorful photographs of the tropics are not enough to redeem it. (Nonfiction. 8-10)
