Michael Morrissey, UWIAA Contact in Asia publishes his new book "Breadfruit Stories"

Michael Morrissey is a researcher, educator, and writer from Jamaica, now living and publishing from his new home in Bali, Indonesia.

He is an honorary professor of The University of the West Indies, where he earned postgraduate degrees and taught for nearly 30 years. For the last 25 years, he has been providing analytical services in many countries across Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean in the field of primary and secondary education development. He is author of many geography and social studies textbooks for Caribbean schools.

Michael first came across breadfruit when he migrated from England to Jamaica in 1968 and was instantly addicted to the wafting aroma of the fruit roasting on an open fire in the parish of St Ann, his first Jamaican home. When he moved to Indonesia in 2006, he focused his research interest on Indies/West Indies linkages. 

Breadfruit Stories: A tree’s journey from Tahiti to the West Indies, 1760s to 1840s, authored by Michael Morrissey and published by TTFF, is now available on Amazon! When you buy a copy on Amazon, Trees That Feed receives a small royalty.

The book documents the journey of breadfruit into the West Indies, beyond the tales of Captain Bligh and the mutiny on The Bounty, and is filled from cover to cover with crisp and colorful photos. Learn about history, botany, and geography in this fun, entertaining, and easy to read book!
