“The glamorous island of the South Pacific – Fiji, Samoa, and Tahiti – are vividly depicted in Frank Clunes latest travel-story.  Written in this popular author’s inimitable style, this book is packed with interesting historical lore and present-day factual observations on life in the South Sea Island.  Here are the adventurous stories of eh sea-explorers of the Pacific-Spanish, Dutch, French and British – and the epic tale of the mutiny of the Bounty; with new light on the notorious South Sea scallywag, Billy Hayes.  Here, too, is carefully collected information on the famous writers and artists, including Robert Louis Stevenson, Pierre Loti, and Paul Gauguin, who sought an escape from civilization in the coral-girt isles of Polynesia.”
