Reviews

"The only biography of Tupaia, Druett's astute portrait vitally contributes to annals of exploration and cultural contact." - Booklist
"Druett's narrative beautifully captures the essence of Tupaia's world and brings it alive for readers. Her excellent study of an extraordinary--and nearly forgotten--Tahitian should be enjoyed by readers interested in British maritime history and Polynesian history and culture." - Library Journal
"Joan Druett has written an interesting and very readable book. . . . Pacific historians will be familiar with most of the events described in the book, but will appreciate this fine focus on and tribute to Tupaia " - International Journal of Maritime History
