"Paints a vivid picture of ancient beliefs in conflict with modern religion and medicine; ritual ceremonies for marriage, birth and death; the anemone that holds life and death. The tales of loneliness, disease and perils of mother nature prove a challenge. but with all this there is laughter and beauty. And now, Mary shares fa'a Samoa with all who turn the pages of this book"--Backcover.
