What a wonderful read! Written in l991, this book is an adventure and a history of all the cultures of the Pacific islands. I felt like I was on vacation and was sad when it was over. It was so much better than going the tourist route.

I really enjoyed reading this before travelling to New Zealand. Though most of the book is not about that country, I learned so much more - about the people who occupy the many South Pacific Islands of Polynesia. Fascinating and enjoyable reading. The author's habit of pulling out his odd collapsible kayak in many of the out of the way places he visited was sure to attract the attention of locals including the kids.
