Description

These powerful stories, which vividly evoke the turn-of-the-century colonial Pacific and its tropical landscape, derive their intensity from the author's own far-flung adventures. Conveying a tortuous inner journey captured in a narrative in which nature is cruel and indifferent to human suffering, this collection shifts between cannibals, headhunters, and pearl and slave traders on the islands. Few authors have portrayed these seas with more passion and conviction. "Estas historias de gran alcance, que claramente evocan el Pacifico colonial a finales del siglo con su paisaje tropical, derivan su intensidad de las aventuras lejanas del autor mismo. Transmitiendo un camino interior tortuoso captado en una narracion en la que la naturaleza es cruel e indiferente al sufrimiento humano, esta coleccion presenta a canibales, cazadores de cabezas, comerciantes de perlas y traficantes de esclavos en las islas. Pocos autores han descrito estos mares con mas pasion y conviccion."
