by Hector MacQuarrie

Angus and Robertson, 1946, [First Edition], black and white photographic plates, illustrated frontispiece, fold-out map, hardcover, dustjacket

“This is a vivid re-creation of the experiences of a District Officer in the Solomon Islands.  Hector MacQuarrie writes with enthusiasm and humour of life in this fascinating region.  Throughout the book he presents a brilliant picture of the people of the Solomons, not as they have been so often mis-represented, but with the realism and warm understanding of first hand knowledge.  Especially compelling is the pen-portrait of Vouza, the heroic and lovable Lance-Corporal of the Santa Cruz District Constabulary.”
