Wild Life Among The Pacific Islanders
A fascinating account of the first foreigner ever to live on Tongareva (or Penrhyn Island). Enmeshed in tribal wars, struggling to understand – and survive – in a culture that was radically different from his own, this classic record gives insights into both the people of Tongareva and their foreign ‘guest’, as well as into culture contact ‘in the raw’. (From back cover). FACSIMILE EDITION OF THE ORIGINAL1867 EDITION.
