Bibliographic Details

Title: Upstream Through Endless Sands of Blessings

Publisher: CBS Publishers

Publication Date: 2007

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Very Good


542 p. Includes: illustrations, bibliography. This book brings to focus the story of the Lahui Ako family from the Guinina-Laurina clan of the village of Hanuabada, situated on the shores of the Fairfax Harbour. It was in Hanuabada where the Londom Missionary Society (LMS) set up base paving the way for Christianity and modernization in the region. Form the time fo the arrival of the taubadas on the shores of Hanuabada and their eventual building of the principal township of Port Moresby, the missionaries, right across World War II and the years before independence, the PNGDF, sports, and finally to the lands across its shores and the diplomatic posts manned by our very own home-grown diplomats, the reader is invited right into the inner sanctum of the minds of the men of this family, men, who by the grace of the most High God, were fortunate enough to be part of this journey, and inadvertently, the history of Papua New Guinea itself. Profusely illustrated with photographs, the book brings to life the story of the twin birht of a nation as seen through the eye sof a Motuan family-their trials, tribulations, and obstacles leading to the births, and the post-birth years up to the present-where the family's adventure through a quagmire of tradition, custom, culture, military life, civil bureaucracy, Christianity, and their oriental experience is brought to life. 0.0.
