Summary
"In the 400 years from Magellan's entrance into Pacific waters to 1920, the lives of the people of the South Pacific were transformed. Pacific people died from exotic diseases from Europe and America. The coming of westerners, as this book points out, was not entirely negative, as head-hunting, cannibalism, chronic warfare, human sacrifice, and other practices were diminished"--provided by publisher
