Description - Solomon Time by Will Randall
Echoing the experiences of Robert Louis Stevenson - who spent several years in the South Pacific - here is the story of a contemporary writer who lived in and came to love the Solomon Islands. Most unexpectedly, Will Randall, once a happy schoolteacher, found himself dispatched to a small village on a not-very-large island, far out in the vastness of the South Pacific. His mission (although he had hardly chosen to accept it) - to fulfil the dying wishes of the "Commander" and help the local people set up a money-making community project. The Solomon Islands, islands lost in time - Solomon Time are little gems of land scattered across the ocean; possibly the last sanctuary on our shrivelled planet not yet overshadowed by the Golden Arches or encapsulated in a Coca-Cola bubble. Everyone has dreamed at some time of living on a desert island. Here is the unvarnished truth. Sharks, turtles, a band of unruly chickens, a cast of extraordinary characters, and a bird called the Spangled Drongo, accompany Will Randall through his Solomon adventures.
