Vikings of the sunrise by Peter Henry Buck( Book )

59 editions published between 1938 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an attempt, by the out-standing authority on Polynesia, to make known to the general public some of the romance associated with the settlement of the Pacific Islands by a Stone Age people who were probably the greatest navigators the world has ever seen. Long before Balboa, even long before Columbus, the Polynesians had crossed the Great Ocean and had colonized its every habitable island. Some of the voyages were over two thousand miles in extent and the vessels consisted of double canoes. Many of their exploits are here recorded for the first time, together with a thorough but non-technical interpretation of the ancient and mysteriously fascinating history and culture of the entire people." --Book jacket
