Books About Saipan

If you are doing research about Saipan, the Saipan Blog undoubtably comes up in Google search after Yahoo search after Bing search. Over the last six years I've written about nearly every environmental and political issue under the sun, explained how to get your Saipan driver's license, given tips on buying a car, and even posted a hard to find photo of Justin Bieber kissing Miley Cyrus. I also compiled The Master List, a woefully outdated list of all the blogs on Saipan. Posted below is a list of recommended books. There are other books I would add to the list, but for whatever reason the publishers or the authors don't make their books available online (thus limiting their readership to the 37 people living on Saipan who read books regularly). These books are all available online and can be delivered anywhere in the world:

Jamaican on Saipan by Walt Goodridge
