South Sea Yarns, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from South Sea Yarns, Vol. 3 I saw that island first when it was neither night nor morning. The moon was to the west, setting, but still broad and bright. To the east, and right amid ships of the dawn, which was all pink, the daystar sparkled like a diamond. The land breeze blew in our faces, and smelt strong of wild lime and vanilla. Other things besides, but these were the most plain; and the chill Of it set me sneezing. I should say I had been for years on a low island near the line, living for the most part solitary among natives. Here was a fresh experience: even the tongue would be quite strange to me -)the look of these woods. And mountains, and the rare smell Of them, renewed my blood.
