Summary
"James A. Michener, the master of historical fiction, revisits the scenes of his first great work, Tales of the South Pacific, the Pulitzer Prize winner that brought him international acclaim. In this sequel collection, Michener once again evokes the magic of the extraordinary isles in the Pacific--from Fiji and Gaudalcanal to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea--through stories that burst with adventure, charm, and local color. For Michener's many fans around the globe, Return to Paradise is a precious second look at a land of enchantment by one of the most gifted storytellers of the twentieth century."--Back cover
