Stories and magnificent images trace the routes of the first navigators among the wonders of the Southern Seas.

Land among the Melanesian peoples of Fiji, Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia and venture into the highlands of New Guinea, virgin treasure trove of Paleolithic customs. Explore the islands of Micronesia, emerald-green mountains adrift at sea, before crossing the deserts, mountains and coastlines of Australia.
