About this title

Synopsis:

The author of The Mosquito Coast recounts his journey to the islands of the Pacific, describing the people, landscape, and wildlife he encounters in New Zealand, Australia, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and Fiji. 100,000 first printing. $90,000 ad/promo.

From the Inside Flap:

"Possibly his best travel book...an observant and frequently hilarious account of a trip that took him to 51 Pacific Islands."
TIME
Renowned travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux has been many places in his life and tried almost everything. But this trip in and around the lands of the Pacific may be his boldest, most fascinating yet. From New Zealand's rain forests, to crocodile-infested New Guinea, over isolated atolls, through dirty harbors, daring weather and coastlines, he travels by Kayak wherever the winds take him--and what he discovers is the world to explore and try to understand.
