Fantasy. Fiction. Thriller. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:It's not on any chart, but the tropical island of Cayo Loco is the perfect place to run away from all your problems. Waking from a ganja buzz on the beach in Tulum, Tully can't believe his eyes when a 142-foot schooner emerges out of the ocean mist. At its helm is Cleopatra Highbourne, the eccentric 101-year-old sea captain who will take him to a lighthouse on a salty piece of land that will change his life forever.
From a lovely sunset sail in Punta Margarita to a wild spring-break foam party in San Pedro, Tully encounters an assortment of treasure hunters, rock stars, sailors, seaplane pilots, pirates, and even a ghost or two.

Man, I love Jimmy Buffet. The man is a storyteller extraordinaire and his books just serve to bolster that reputation.

Take a cowboy from Wyoming, transport him to the Caribbean by way of New Orleans and Key West, throw in a Mayan shaman, a 101-year-old sailor with a schooner AND a country singer on a quest and you have one hell of a tale. Highly recommended. ( )

This is a wonderful read that reminds me more than anything of an extended Jimmy Buffett song. It is a wonderful romp through the Caribbean with a cowboy turned sailor, Tully Mars, who is seeking to avoid complications from the mistakes he has made in life. In the process he discovers a new life, wonderful friends and home. If you are a Buffett fan, this is a must read. If you are not a Buffett fan, you will still enjoy the book, and will likely become a fan in the process. The characters are realistic and well developed, the plot has some delightful twists and turns and the story is just fun escapism with a few deep thoughts along the way. Buffett will have you longing for a life at sea with the occasional beach party as you journey with Tully as he seeks his place in the world. ( )

There is a fine line between fiction and nonfiction, and I believe Jimmy Buffett and I snorted it in 1976. The two of us are among the few musicians in the Western world who make a regular habit of writing prose, which may also explain why this newspaper decided upon me to review this book rather than, say, Philip Roth. Maybe it was God who selected me to review Buffett's book. Whoever sent it to me, however, has created a happy circumstance because I think ''A Salty Piece of Land'' is very possibly Buffett's best work to date.

To forget a friend is sad. Not every one has had a friend. And if I forget him, I may become like the grown−ups who are no longer interested in anything but figures.
