The description and the two reviews I've read say it all very well. How neat to be able to visit these remote islands--without the inconvenience of travel, bugs, snakes, diseases and enervating tropical heat! The movie "PT-109" showed these beautiful places and the gorgeous pacific. And a long time ago I read a book by Charis Crockett, an anthropologist in New Guinea, called "The House in the Rain Forest". She typed much of her book with a tree kangaroo on her shoulder. Fascinating places with an amazing variety of flora and fauna. I highly recommend both books.
My only complaint is the shortage of photos! How I'd love to see the coral and colorful fish, the birds, more flowers, and views of the rain forests! The native people are interesting, the bats and rats are cute (I suspect that it would take a zoologist to call them beautiful as he does) and I'm glad he included the pictures. But five or ten times that many would have made a really superior book. I bought this thru Amazon.
