Seven essays and accompanying photographs about the Marshall Islands, one of the undiscovered destinations for travelers looking for unique experiences in the Pacific. The stories look at contemporary life in the Marshall Islands: handicraft arts and culture; the revival of a traditional canoe culture; the growing use of local foods on restaurant menus; some of the best deep-sea sport fishing anywhere; the strength of local churches; private and affordable "get away islands;" and portraits of islanders. The authors, both with deep experience in Oceania, share the unique charms and attractions of the little known Marshall Islands.
