I am writing a novel about Jamaica in the XVI century. Anyone know of any "fiction" or non fiction books that
may provide more insight on the culture there at that time.

One of the best things about hte CIA is that they allow "Jane/Joe Public" access to the CIA Worldbook. Pick a place, a time and the CIA Worldbook is a great source of credible factual information. Besides the CIA World Book, I purchased "The History of Jamaica" at a Target department store in Texas. Barnes and Noble, and all of the bigger bookstores carry the same book, which covers the period you are looking at. Between the two you'll have a wealth of knowledge at your disposal. A lot of interesting items/ history in old Jamaica. Good luck with your novel.
