Slowly, out of the morning mists, an is land took shape. The little ship rose and sank on the Pacific swell. For I knew that of all the groups in the South Seas, the New Hebrides were held to be the wildest. The salt breeze ruffled my hair. I played my trick calmly and in silence, but my heart beat fast at the sight of that bit of land coming up like magic out of the gray water. They were inhabited by the fiercest of cannibals. On many of the islands, white men had scarcely trod. Vast, unknown areas remained to be explored. I thrilled at the thought of facing danger in the haunts of savage men.

I had read excerpts from this book years ago and decided to order the book. It's a good read, exciting, some have suggested TOO exciting, ie exaggerated, but nice to have if you like antique books, old travel books, Pacific islands, etc. If you're really into this subject the book can be read fairly quickly.

I enjoyed it very much. It was written so long ago, 1922, things were so different in those times. Would like to have the other six of his books avaliable for my Kindle.

I partially read Osa Johnson's account, "I Married Adventure" which covered the same New Hebrides adventure her husband, Martin, writes about in "Cannibal-Land". What a difference in writing styles. Martin is a man of few words with one single mission--to prove that cannibalism was being practiced in the South Seas around 1919. Indeed it was, and budding photographer Martin captures those moments and more, which he shares in books, film footage and lectures throughout the world. His escapades are exciting--I only wish Martin had elaborated more. His simple writing style is very matter-of-fact, whereas Osa's overdramatic rendition included many unimportant details (usually about herself swooning or fainting). Something in-between would have made the perfect book.
Regardless, these two certainly complemented each other. Martin was obsessed with getting savage/cannibal film footage, often putting everyones' lives in grave danger. Osa took it all in stride--one gets the sense (from her book)that she secretly yearned for a more domestic or stable lifestyle. Instead, Osa followed Martin everywhere and made the best of many hair-raising situations. Their writings accurately describe foreign cultures of a different era when white superiority dominated, providing interesting first-hand history lessons.

This is just a bad printing of screen grabs from the net. The photos are missing and two of the pages are missing text. I have since found out that this book can be downloaded in pdf form, for free with pictures, and better text, from the Open Library : [...]
Amazon should not be selling these "books"
There seem to be quite a few around and not always recognisable.
