The Reverend Joseph Waterhouse witnessed Fijian life at the earliest stages of the nineteenth century. His work offers an excellent insight into the traditional Fijian way of life. Waterhouse also tells the bloodcurdling history of Cakobau, the chief who wanted to be king of all Fiji. This is a classic work of its type, with sharp and sensitive descriptions of the cultural practices and politics of the era.
