An endlessly fascinating volume of South Pacific miscellany - scientific data, historical facts, cultural 'trivia', sporting feats, mythology, practical information and vital statistics.
The collection contains the essential, the illuminating, the curious and the useless. The focus is on the South Pacific, from Hawaii to the South Pole. For New Zealanders and other people of the Pacific, it is a book about their own countries and region, their separate histories and identities. This book is not exhaustive, authoritative or even practical. It is, however, essential and deeply engrossing.
