“Once readers start the journey with Cooper, the sights, sounds, people and spirits of Fiji will remain in their thoughts forever.”
In the tradition of Ernest Hemingway, James Michener, and Zane Grey, Tom Tatum has created a retro-classic novel about the exotic island nation of Fiji.
It is a story whose pages will not stop turning as Cooper, an idealistic young American Peace Corps Volunteer ventures beyond the edge of his own culture’s reality limits.
The novel follows Cooper’s quest to help the Islanders balance their needs against those of the invading modern world. The events of his last year in Fiji during 1970, foreshadow a shocking murder that takes Cooper on a search for clues leading him into the spiritual world of the Island’s animistic gods and the darkest reaches of human nature.
Through Cooper’s eyes and recollections in narrative style, the reader will enjoy the sensual eroticism of an unspoiled natural paradise only recently connected to the world’s grid of jetliners.
Once readers start the journey with Cooper, the sights, sounds, people and spirits of Fiji will remain in their thoughts forever.
