From Library Journal:

A comprehensive popular history of Pacific exploration by the author of Magellan . Cameron's narrative is readable and accurate, but its division into national histories (Spanish, British, etc.) rather than a straight chronological account, its failure to provide adequate historical context, and its concentration on a few major explorers, reduce its value for the general reader. The title indicates the author's strongly held view that Europeans destroyed a near-idyllic civilization. A profusely illustrated work in an area inadequately covered by good general popular histories. J.F. Husband, Framingham State Coll. Lib., Mass.
