Inhaltsangabe: This is a collection of Kim Gravelle's island encounters, most of them during the last decade, with people good and bad (mostly good); with ghosts and ancestral spirits, crocodiles and bush creatures; with toddy drinkers and pub-folk, open-ocean sailors and nostalgic whalers. It is a light-hearted look at Pacific lifestyles from the tranquil to the tempestuous, experienced on open seas, wild rivers, mountain tracks and village greens.
This is a book for the Pacific traveler: no guides, no rate sheets in sight, but an insight into the sometimes wondrous, sometimes wacky world of the islands a delightful world most of the time, an adventure almost all the time. It is the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, Fiji and the Samoas, Tonga, Tahiti and the Cook Islands all mixed together in a coconut shell with a little bit of Queensland thrown in, a tropical potpourri.
Romancing the Islands is about a medicine-man in Malaita; a tattooist in Samoa; a whaler in Tonga; a rebellious priest in Niue. Come pig hunting, ghost-chasing, grog-drinking, mud-strolling. It's good fun.
Über den Autor: Kim Gravelle is a photo-journalist with more than 25 years of South Pacific living and exploring under his belt.
