Pacific Passages Hardback
Part of the Armchair Traveller series
The first Europeans to catch sight of the islands of the South Seas thought that they had chanced upon paradise, and the tales they told on returning to their homes encouraged all other Europeans to idealise the islands as a tropical Arcadia.
The truth was very different and the apparent idyll of the South Sea islanders was shattered by the fatal impact of European discovery.
