Solomon Time: An Unlikely Quest in the South Pacific

Solomon Time: An Unlikely Quest in the South Pacific
$35.95

Who hasn’t fantasized about dismantling his or her hassled, wired-up life for a simpler existence? Yet who among us has the will and opportunity to do it? The answer, of course, is very few.Will Randall, a young English schoolmaster, had such a chance — and took it. He uprooted his conventional First World life and let himself be blown to one of the farthest and most beautiful corners of the earth, the Solomon Islands of the South Pacific. In the entertaining tradition of Bill Bryson’s In a Sunburned Country, this is the story of Solomon Time.From the first, it’s an improbable journey. In a chance encounter on a rugby field, Randall meets a doddering old man known as "the Commander," who has retired to England after running a cocoa plantation in the South Pacific for thirty years. Six months later, the Commander dies and his will is read: he wants someone to travel to his beloved, long-missed island — where his plantation has fallen into ruin — and devise a way for the natives to support themselves. If successful, they might avoid poverty, build a new school, and even fend off the greedy developers circling their peaceful waters.It’s a mission of noblesse oblige, yet possibly a fool’s errand, too. Randall agrees to go.Spread across the Tropic of Capricorn, the Solomon Islands are not so much the Pacific archipelago that time forgot as the one that forgets time. Randall’s new home is Mendali, a fishing village so remote it can be reached only by motorized canoe. But the people of the village, some with cheeks engraved with a rising sun, are welcoming, for they remember the Commander kindly, and still practice a pagan Anglicanism in a church he built for them in 1956. They sleep in houses made of leaves and live on fish of every sort, mud crabs, yams, ngali nuts, even the honeycomb of termites.Randall decides that the villagers could raise chickens, and they greet the idea with enthusiasm. But finding live chicken eggs in their watery world proves wildly difficult, and Randall must chase after the eggs over shark-infested seas and through jungles where strange characters reside, including a one-eyed dwarf and a tattooed lady.One couldn’t imagine a better man than Will Randall to help the people of Mendali meet the twenty-first century on their own terms. But will he succeed?Solomon Time is a moving and witty account of one man’s accidental adventure in paradise and is certain to enchant explorers and armchair travelers alike.

Cruising Japan to New Zealand: The Voyage of the Sea Quest
$29.95

Following several years spent cruising the South Pacific Islands, Tere Batham and her husband traveled north and settled in Japan. After two and a half years, they set out once again, embarking on a fourteen-month, 10,000-mile voyage back to their home in New Zealand. Accompanied by Miki, a beautiful young Japanese girl eager to escape an arranged marriage and her country’s rigorous social restrictions, they navigated the giant whirlpools of Japan’s Inland Sea, joined in a torch-lit midnight festival at Kompira San, traversed volcanic coastlines, and threaded narrow channels among scenic islands strewn with temples and lashed by typhoons. Their route took them to Japan’s Southern Archipelago, the Taiwan Straits, Hong Kong, Macau, the Philippines, and Micronesia. They discovered the remnants of an ancient South Sea Island culture verging on extinction, explored the daunting ruins of megalithic Nan Madol, endured violent storms, and witnessed a deadly crocodile attack before finally reaching their destination. Armchair cruisers and serious sailors alike will benefit from Batham’s practical tips even as they thrill at her frank, gripping account of dangers and navigational challenges overcome.

Solomon Time: An Unlikely Quest in the South Pacific

Solomon Time: An Unlikely Quest in the South Pacific
$35.95

Who hasn’t fantasized about dismantling his or her hassled, wired-up life for a simpler existence? Yet who among us has the will and opportunity to do it? The answer, of course, is very few.Will Randall, a young English schoolmaster, had such a chance — and took it. He uprooted his conventional First World life and let himself be blown to one of the farthest and most beautiful corners of the earth, the Solomon Islands of the South Pacific. In the entertaining tradition of Bill Bryson’s In a Sunburned Country, this is the story of Solomon Time.From the first, it’s an improbable journey. In a chance encounter on a rugby field, Randall meets a doddering old man known as "the Commander," who has retired to England after running a cocoa plantation in the South Pacific for thirty years. Six months later, the Commander dies and his will is read: he wants someone to travel to his beloved, long-missed island — where his plantation has fallen into ruin — and devise a way for the natives to support themselves. If successful, they might avoid poverty, build a new school, and even fend off the greedy developers circling their peaceful waters.It’s a mission of noblesse oblige, yet possibly a fool’s errand, too. Randall agrees to go.Spread across the Tropic of Capricorn, the Solomon Islands are not so much the Pacific archipelago that time forgot as the one that forgets time. Randall’s new home is Mendali, a fishing village so remote it can be reached only by motorized canoe. But the people of the village, some with cheeks engraved with a rising sun, are welcoming, for they remember the Commander kindly, and still practice a pagan Anglicanism in a church he built for them in 1956. They sleep in houses made of leaves and live on fish of every sort, mud crabs, yams, ngali nuts, even the honeycomb of termites.Randall decides that the villagers could raise chickens, and they greet the idea with enthusiasm. But finding live chicken eggs in their watery world proves wildly difficult, and Randall must chase after the eggs over shark-infested seas and through jungles where strange characters reside, including a one-eyed dwarf and a tattooed lady.One couldn’t imagine a better man than Will Randall to help the people of Mendali meet the twenty-first century on their own terms. But will he succeed?Solomon Time is a moving and witty account of one man’s accidental adventure in paradise and is certain to enchant explorers and armchair travelers alike.

Cruising Japan to New Zealand: The Voyage of the Sea Quest
$29.95

Following several years spent cruising the South Pacific Islands, Tere Batham and her husband traveled north and settled in Japan. After two and a half years, they set out once again, embarking on a fourteen-month, 10,000-mile voyage back to their home in New Zealand. Accompanied by Miki, a beautiful young Japanese girl eager to escape an arranged marriage and her country’s rigorous social restrictions, they navigated the giant whirlpools of Japan’s Inland Sea, joined in a torch-lit midnight festival at Kompira San, traversed volcanic coastlines, and threaded narrow channels among scenic islands strewn with temples and lashed by typhoons. Their route took them to Japan’s Southern Archipelago, the Taiwan Straits, Hong Kong, Macau, the Philippines, and Micronesia. They discovered the remnants of an ancient South Sea Island culture verging on extinction, explored the daunting ruins of megalithic Nan Madol, endured violent storms, and witnessed a deadly crocodile attack before finally reaching their destination. Armchair cruisers and serious sailors alike will benefit from Batham’s practical tips even as they thrill at her frank, gripping account of dangers and navigational challenges overcome.
