Manuiota'a: Journal of a Voyage to the Marquesas Islands
As passengers on the freighter Aranui, the authors describe all the islands of this Polynesian paradise, from north to south, from Nuku Hiva to Fatu Iva. In so doing, they do more than merely provide us with a view of the exotic beauty of the Marquesan islands and their charming inhabitants. Their suspense-filled journal gives us insights into the mysterious Marquesan culture and the long and turbulent history of the archipelago, which as been so deeply impacted by colonization.
