Synopsis: The essential guidebook to this mysterious and enigmatic island, and the only book about Easter Island written by someone who lives there. This guidebook includes the island's history, culture and all of its significant archaeological sites. It also contains all of the practical information needed for your visit, including island activities and up-to-date restaurant and shopping recommendations. It will also tell you the best times to visit the sites in order to get the optimal light for photography and to avoid the crowds, as well as many other 'local' tips that no other guidebook will tell you. Contains over 100 color photos of Easter Island, as well as color maps of both the island and the one town, Hanga Roa.
About the Author: James Grant-Peterkin was born in Scotland, and fulfilled a childhood dream when he first set foot on Easter Island in 1996, aged just 19. A graduate of Cambridge University, he wrote his finals dissertation on the unique linguistic situation of Easter Island - the only place in the world where Spanish is spoken alongside a Polynesian language. He has been living on Rapa Nui since 2001, and has been leading specialist tours of the island for over a decade. He now runs his own private touring company, Easter Island Spirit, and is also the British Honorary Consul on the island.
