Polynesian Islands Atlas New

Be the first to review this product

This is the only way we could think of to portray hundreds of relatively small islands efficiently. The atlas covers the Cook Islands, Easter Island, Hawaiian Islands, Nauru, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti/French Polynesia, and Tonga. It is not complete for all of what might be considered Polynesia, in that Vanuatu, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and New Caledonia were left out because we do not have artwork for these areas, but this is as good as it gets for now! Hawaii occupies 44 pages of the atlas; the Solomons 11 pages, tiny Nauru one, Samoa 15, the Cook Islands an amazing 20 pages, and Tahiti 20. Easter Island is included because the evidence is that the original settlers migrated from Polynesia, not Peru, and occupies another 18 pages. Maps of the South Pacific islands are difficult to prepare, being small land masses in a vast ocean. This atlas is an attempt to combine as many such islands together into a comprehensive whole to ensure continued map coverage of a part of the world that is otherwise impractical to map. I wish there were enough market demand to afford a map of Pitcairn or the Marshalls or Vanuatu, but if there is, I can't see it. We're pleased to have been able to pull together so many diverse island entities into one volume and hope that you'll agree that this part of the world has a combined market justifying producing such an atlas. The artwork is excellent; the coverage comprehensive.
