Written by a member of the community, this small book paints an intimate portrait of everyday life in a Fijian village in the Rewa delta in southeastern Viti Levu. In an engaging first-person account Solomoni Biturogoiwasa tells how he and his fellow villagers order their social lives, make a living from their environment, worship their God and pass through major life stages, conscious of the ways of their forefathers and of their citizenship in the modern Republic of the Fiji Islands. The work ends with a bibliographic essay by Anthony Walker, setting this work within the context of the ethnographic literature on indigenous Fijian social and cultural institutions. The book is profusely illustrated with photographs, as well as with the author's own charming line sketches.
