NEW PUBLISHER RE-RELEASES 'SETTLER'S HANDBOOK'

Oct. 20, 2002 – After a seven-year absence from the shelf, "The Settler’s Handbook for the U.S. Virgin Islands" is making a comeback. Linda Bruton, an 11-year resident of St. Croix, said she saw a definite need for the book to be revised.
"The Settler’s Handbook" provides a wealth of information for newcomers on how to get along in the U.S. Virgin Islands, from moving to the territory to how to register your car, and a brief overview of V.I. history and culture.
"I was pleased to be able to acquire the book from the family of the late owner, Judy Megnin," Bruton said. "The concept was the idea of Doug Burn, a longtime resident of St. Croix."
Bruton spent about seven months researching and revamping the handbook, updating information on everything from government departments to anticipated utility rates. Individual chapters focus specifically on St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John.
It is being carried at Connections on St. John, and Dockside Bookshop, Hemingways and Island Periodicals at Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas. It also can be purchased online at the Visit St. Croix Web site.
The 190-page book is useful to those considering settling in the territory, and for those already living in the islands. It provides an objective look at living, working and/or investing in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
