      Fascinating and memorable view of the Solomon Islands between the First and Second World Wars The author and her friend set out to document, in painted portraits, the disappearing native culture The book also captures the colonialism, condescension, and racism of the Western culture that supplanted it.

      Interesting account of two white women s two year expedition into the Solomon Islands as they attempted to document in drawings and photos the indigenous tribes of the area before their unique cultures were spoiled by civilization Their adventures, mishaps and successes made this an enjoyable book to read.

      Although it took me quite a while to finish, I enjoyed this book The two travelers were curious about everything they saw, and reported it in a fresh manner Although written in the forties, I didn t catch much of the bias view of the native people I thought would be there in the time period The girls were open and honest, nonjudgmental, without falling in the PC traps we are circumscribed by today It s as interesting to learn about them as it is to see the islands through their eyes Recommended.

      Interesting and mixed a study in well intentioned prejudice with fascinating adventures along the way Two young women set off to paint the disappearing primitives in the 1930s While not a fast read, they are determined and resourceful and manage to survive 4 years, nearly without money, in pursuit of their quest.
