About this title

Synopsis:

Culture has many faces. People are most aware of the creative arts - dance, song, chant, drama, carving, painting, weaving, tattoo, oral tradition and written literature, sports and games, as well as other forms of expression such as the symbols of national identity. Other equally important and more basic aspects od culture are also touched on here, including language, religion, rites of passage, personality and cultural aspects of food. This book views key elements of Cook Islands culture from within as it is, as it was, and as it may become.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
