Deeply researched and deeply felt, this is a poetic reimagining of the first encounters of Europeans and Tahitians during the historic voyages of Captain James Cook. Examining both imperialism and exploration, Holmes illuminates the cultural exchanges, clashes, miscommunications, and friendships that developed during these European sojourns.
