"Alasa'a's words form the core of this book, presenting one man's perspective on the history of his people. However, this introduces a broader view of the past based on other sources, interpreting Alasa'a's account for those unfamiliar with his cultural background and contributing different historical perspectives, both local and colonial. The editors have drawn on oral history, anthropological research and archival records to present a man-sided account of a rich and complex Pacific Islands history." "Alasa'a's narrative is printed in both Kwara'ae and English, with 58 black and white illustrations."--BOOK JACKET.
