    I didn t read this title word for word in fact, I basically skipped the sunken continents theory chapter but it s definitely interesting in that you get the current accepted answers to Pacific Island settlement and a look at the 200 year history of researching ok, that s generous for some of the wackadoo ideas but you get what I mean the settlement pattern of the last habitable lands on earth.

    A good overview of current scholarship on the origins and spread of people through the Pacific Also combined with the debunking of much of the crap currently floating around and pretending to be scholarship.

    A quick summary of why so many people believe falsehoods about where polynesians came from Interesting, but a wee bit academic.
