As of August 2016, I am on a one-year sabbatical. I have dedicated the year to completing two manuscripts: a textbook, co-authored with Dr. Joy McCorriston, dedicated to understanding world prehistory within the context of the Anthropocene, and a book focused on the prehistory, ecology, and recent history of the Fiji Islands. That book is tentatively entitled, ‘Three Thousand Years in the Southwest Pacific’. During the year I will be writing as much as possible from a quiet and cozy home in Port Ludlow, Washington.Raven returns as salmon, at the Jefferson County Library, Port Hadlock, Washington.
The rare book by Arthur Gordon, ‘Letters and Notes Written During the Disturbances in the Highlands (known as the ‘Devil Country’) of Viti Levu, Fiji 1876‘, is now available on Google! You can read this for free! It is full of places, names, people, and occurrences that unfolded in the interior of Viti Levu during the years 1875-1877.
Actually, that’s bulamakau! Read on about my research using the links to the left!
