CORAM: ANDERSON J.

This is yet another tale which exemplifies the spiritual attachment to, and the

central role of, land in the Jamaican culture and how disputes over land can pitch

family members against each other in costly legal battles over relatively small

tracts of land. In this case, the plot of land at the heart of the drama, is a little

over one (1) acre in the hills of rural St. Andrew, in a district, ironically named,

"Mount Friendzhip".
