A History of Saba by Sabans
So exact are the words by Alex Haley: "When an old person dies, it's like a library burning down." Especially in a place where pillage and fire, and inclement weather could  destroy years of precious records leaving us to, many times, guess some of the data based on circumstantial evidence of letters, photos, or family lore passed down in form a verbal meme.
Will Johnson, local historian and for many years leader of Saba's Government,  first authored "Saban Lore" in 1979, which recounts the history of Saba through both the oral and documented records.
