They expect to find the paradise of popular literature; instead, they encounter poverty, apathy and Cococolonisation, and the modern hell of nuclear radiation. But as they come to know the islands better, making repeated visits and studying their history, they learn to accept that Micronesia must find its own form and style, its own truth." – From the front fold over panel blurb.
