In his latest book, Mystery Islands: Discovering the Ancient Pacific, Tom Koppel takes us on an epic journey that spans millennia and mindboggling distances of the world’s largest ocean. Koppel is an inveterate traveler, intrepid adventurer and eager investigator who criss-crosses the Pacific, going to great lengths and depths to uncover treasure troves of folklore and science. He ponders how ancient voyagers spread culture and language, agriculture and architecture, religion and rituals across Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. He kayaks through the ruins of a royal city built miraculously on an archipelago of islets off Pohnpei more than 1,000 years ago. And while Koppel sifts through the centuries, he provides enlightened commentary about familiar travel destinations like Hawaii, New Zealand and the Galapagos Islands. To travel with him in these pages is to share the thrill of discovery and experience the warmth and wisdom of the people he meets along the way. It’s a tour de force tour of the Pacific. Stu Glauberman, co-author of The Dream Begins: How Hawaii Shaped Barack Obama. He was a staff writer with the Honolulu Star-Bulletin before joining the Honolulu Advertiser and later served as spokesman for Aloha Airlines.
