The  eight  short  stories  that  comprise  South  Sea  Tales  are  powerful  tales  that 
vividly  evoke  the  early  1900’s  colonial  South  Pacific  islands.  Tales  of  hurricanes, 
missionaries,  brotherhood  and  seafaring  are  intertwined  with  enslavement, 
savagery,  and  lawless  trading  to  expose  the  often-barbarous  history  of  the  South 
Pacific  islands.  You  will  also  gain  unsparing  insight  into  the  life,  culture  and 
relations  between  natives  and  Westerners  during  this  period.  If  you  like  nautical 
and  sea  adventures,  if  you  are  interested  in  the  history  of  the  South  Pacific 
islands,  and  especially  if  you  want  to  read  gripping  tales  set  in  the  exotic  lands, 
then  this  book  will  be  perfect  for  you.  However,  please  be  forewarned  that  It  does 
contain  racist  content.
