About this product
- DescriptionCome island hop with me through the Samoas to Fiji, Tonga, and Niue - and on to the many French Pacific possessions including remote Wallis and Futuna. I have found after almost 40 years of travel through these islands that a great sense of pride and acceptance of newcomers continues to be expressed by the local populations to those who make the effort to become a part of their beautiful world. The expats who live here continue to work in lands they longer call foreign. Many marry locals, most drink in the downtown bars, and they all tell their stories. Yes, their stories - hilarious, heart-breaking, or thought-provoking - it is difficult to kw where fact ends and fiction begins, but all are unforgettable and all are true to the raconteur.
- Author BiographyGraeme Kennedy discovered the South Pacific after moving from his native Australia to New Zealand where he continued his long newspaper career working on mainstream daily and weekly publications and winning a major national journalism award. Auckland's proximity to the Pacific led him through work and pleasure to the islands he loves and he has visited most of them several times. In Samoa, Kennedy was honoured with a high chief title in recognition of his writing about the nation and its people.
