James A. Michener, the master of historical fiction, revisits the scenes of his first great work, "Tales of the South Pacific, " the Pulitzer Prize winner that brought him international acclaim. In this sequel collection, Michener once again evokes the magic of the extraordinary isles in the Pacific--from Fiji and Gaudalcanal to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea--through stories that burst with adventure, charm, and local color. For Michener's many fans around the globe, "Return to Paradise "is a precious second look at a land of enchantment by one of the most gifted storytellers of the twentieth century. Praise for "Return to Paradise"" " "A brilliant book and a worthy successor to "Tales of the South Pacific.""--"The Atlanta Constitution"" " "This is a book that should be read by everyone. . . . All who have seen the South Pacific will find on every page the odors of frangipani, copra, blood, and beer."--"The New York Times"" " "There's drama and pathos and adventure and humanity . . . and a very high degree of excellence. Michener can write."--"Kirkus Reviews"
