Little, Brown and Company 1951 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed and signed by author on front endpaper. Dust has chips at edges, but now covered in mylar cover. Tahiti, a hundred years before the tidal wave of L.S.T.s, is the setting for the story of Marianna, daughter of a rigidly strict missionary, and her coming of age. The French were trying to seize control and the British missionaries who preceded them were trying desperately to get help from home: Queen Pomare, shabbily treated by the French, was writing pathetic letters to her sister monarch, Victoria. The school on Marianna's beloved Point Venus was closed, and that, together with the death of her father and her necessary move to town, brings her out of her isolated, ivory tower life. She was able then to return the love of the educated, American beach comber, Jonas Burkham, and their liaison shut them out of the life of the town. But they help the natives in their hopeless fight, back in the hills, where their hardships temper their love into durability and Jonas turns again to writing when an injury stops his trading by schooner. Soft breezes for the dog days.(Kirkus Review); 8 X 5.60 X 1.20 inches; 312 pages; Signed by Author
