KIRKUS REVIEW

Native life in the Manu's Islands by one who was called the Shadow Catcher because of his photographing...Living in the various communities and islands, entering into all phases of the native life, which is the most untouched of the South Seas, the author had a whopping good time and became a thoroughly accepted part of all the celebrations and ceremonies, of birth, marriage, death, etc. He hunted sharks, killing them with lasso and knife, he became a regent for a young chief, he practiced magic, he helped to catch a murderer, and altogether gives and enthusiastic picture of his earthly paradise. Escape plus.
