    Help me out please.

    People who went to secondary school in the West Indies, do you remember the History books you used? I only remember the names of those I used in Forms 4 and 5 - Caribbean Story books 1 and 2 but I'm trying to track down the ones I used from Form 1 to 3 because they were excellent and I'd like to add them to my library. So could you list the books you remember using so I can see if any of them jogs my memory. It's not A History of the West Indies and they did not have any 'West Indies" in the title. It was three-part series for each form. I think the first one was blue and started off with the migration from the bearing straight and was on the civilizations of the Americas and I remeber covering the dynasties in China and stuff, the second book was burgundy-ish I think and the third was green.
