Book Overview
As the ship sails north to a remote group of islands, everything lies ahead for young Richard Broomhead. He is to become the manager of a copra plantation and begin his adventure.

As Richard adjusts to life on an exposed archipelago in the South Pacific, paradise quickly transforms into a living hell. Marooned for months on end with no supplies or contact with the outside world, Richard’s sanity is threatened. Among the many hardships, he is attacked by native workers wielding matches, as he struggles helplessly with loneliness and isolation.

A German Baron and his castle, a bureaucratic English-man, and the beautiful island women, are just some of the characters that round out this fast paced memoir.

Exquisitely written, the author evokes powerful images of the islands’ landscape.
