All over these seas, the word "nuee"is significant of quantity. So remiss did they become in theirattentions that we could no longer rely upon their bringing us thedaily supply of food, which all of them had faithfully promised.

All over these seas, the word "nuee"is significant of quantity. Its repetition is like placing ciphers atthe right hand of a numeral; the more places you carry it out to, thegreater the sum. Judge, then, of Kooloo's esteem. Nor is the allusionto the ciphers at all inappropriate, seeing that, in themselves,Kooloo's profession turned out to be worthless. He was, alas! assounding brass and a tinkling cymbal; one of those who make no musicunless the clapper be silver.

Название книги: In the South Seas. Автор: Роберт Льюис Стивенсон. The period is the same as in the Marquesas; doubtless the symptoms were so too.

Before the invasion by tourists, writer Nancy Phelan worked in the South Pacific. As a member of the South Pacific Commission staff, she spent months of each year in the islands - New Caledonia, Fiji, Niue, Tonga, Western Samoa, American Samoa, the Northern and Southern Cook Islands, Tahiti, Ocean Island, Nauru, the Gilbert Islands (Kiribati).Almost forty years later she returned to Kiribati, Samoa and the Cook Islands, rekindling the enchantment of that earlier era and seeing first-hand the changes brought by Independence. The result is an exhilarating, often very funny account of Island life in the 1950s from the perspective of the 1990s.
