O'Brien, Frederick: Mystic Isles of the South Seas [Illus]. v1. 05 Aug. 07
I'm a sucker for books on th South Seas. This one looked so interesting - just as a fun read - that I got caught up in it and had to make it available for anyone who might be interested. You are not allowed to download this unless you have a hammock.
Here's what the Author has to say in his introduction:
"This is a simple record of my days and nights, my thoughts and dreams, in the mystic isles of the South Seas, written without authority of science or exactitude of knowledge. These are merely the vivid impressions of my life in Tahiti and Moorea, the merriest, most fascinating world of all the cosmos; of the songs I sang, the dances I danced, the men and women, white and tawny, with whom I was joyous or melancholy; the adventures at sea or on the reef, upon the sapphire lagoon, and on the silver beaches of the most beautiful of tropics."
I hope you enjoy it. (Remember what I told you about that hammock!
