Marlon August, a Cayo native that grew up in Esperanza, has released his autobiography, entitled 'My Life and Travels in Belize.' Sounds like a great book, with some really touching stories.
"'What inspired me to write this book is the people (tourist) that I have meet throughout the course of the year and the stories we share,' said August. August says most of the stories are related to his personal life but some are tied down to people and events that are rich part of history. One such anecdote involves a detailed description of him hiking along the roads of Belize and getting a ride with the Father of the Nation, the late Rt. Hon. George Cadle Price. 'I think I had to include that part because it shows how Belize has developed. The two people I was with, a Venezuelan and a Canadian, were surprised that the country’s leader would stop and give people along the street a ride, something not common to them in their country,' said a smiling August."
