About this Item: Macmillan Co., New York, 1948. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Hardcover xl-from an academic library, very clean, no dj, minimal library wear and markings, x, 241 p. 21 cm. - Frisbie, Johnny, -- 1932- , Pukapuka Atoll (Cook Islands) -- Social life and customs. Robert Dean Frisbie (17 April 1896 - 19 November 1948) was an American writer of travel literature about Polynesia. Robert Dean Frisbie was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on April 17, 1896, the son of Arthur Grazly Frisbie and Florence Benson. As a young man, he left his parental home to serve in the U.S. Army during World War I. After discharge from the military, doctors told him that his health was so bad that he would not survive another American winter. So, in 1920, he decided to explore the islands of the South Pacific Ocean. He arrived at his first destination, Tahiti, in that year, settled down to lead a life as a plantation owner in Papeete, and began to write about his travels. He also established the South Seas News and Pictorial Syndicate and began sending stories back to the U.S. for publication. In later voyages through Polynesia (spanning his entire lifetime), he regularly visited the Cook Islands, Samoa and French Polynesia. In writing down his observations of life in the Pacific, Frisbie followed the footsteps of other famous 19th century South Sea writers. One of his major influences was Robert Louis Stevenson.He was also well informed of the work of fellow travel writers in his time, with whom he kept in touch. Florence Frisbie (better known as Johnny) was born on June 19, 1932 in Papeete, Tahiti, the second child of Robert Dean and Ngatokorua Frisbie. As a youngster encouraged by her father to write, Johnny kept journals in three languages (including Pukapukan). At the age of 12 she began an autobiographical children's novel based on these journals, Miss Ulysses of Puka-Puka, which deals with her life on the atoll and her bond with her father and family. Miss Ulysses was published by Macmillan Co in 1948. Ex-Library. Seller Inventory # 0804040213800
