'Wonderfully researched and beautifully written' Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan 'Succeeds in conjuring a lost world' Dava Sobel, author of Longitude 'Fascinating and satisfying' Simon Winchester, author of The Map that Changed the World For more than a millennium, Polynesians have occupied the remotest islands in the Pacific Ocean, a vast triangle stretching from Hawaii to New Zealand to Easter Island. Until the arrival of European explorers they were the only people to have ever lived there. Both the most closely related and the most widely dispersed people in the world before the era of mass migration, Polynesians can trace their roots to a group of epic voyagers who ventured out into the unknown in one of the greatest adventures in human history. How did the earliest Polynesians find and colonise these far-flung islands? How did a people without writing or metal tools conquer the largest ocean in the world? This conundrum, which came to be known as the Problem of Polynesian Origins, emerged in the eighteenth century as one of the great geographical mysteries of mankind. For Christina Thompson, this mystery is personal: her Maori husband and their sons descend directly from these ancient navigators. In Sea People, Thompson explores the fascinating story of these ancestors, as well as those of the many sailors, linguists, archaeologists, folklorists, biologists and geographers who have puzzled over this history for three hundred years. A masterful mix of history, geography, anthropology, and the science of navigation, Sea People is a vivid tour of one of the most captivating regions in the world. s find and colonise these far-flung islands?

So many people discuss the importance of educating our nation and our students getting degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM), but it is often difficult to successfully guide students through the educational landscape. This results in low retention rates, poor academic outcomes, and an increase in the difficulty of recruiting students into technology related careers. What's needed are real world examples of trailblazers who carved out their own path to success in STEM and are willing to guide others in successfully reaching their educational destinations. What's needed are STEM Navigators. STEM Navigators is a compilation of real life STEM success stories from people who have not only been wildly successful in pursuing and obtaining their own Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics degrees, but they have all worked to teach, mentor, and research ways to guide others effectively through obtaining a STEM education.

Jules Verne has invented so many tales of adventure that he is quite at home when he comes to chronicle the wonderful feats of exploration which testify that truth is stranger than fiction. The Great Navigators of the Eighteenth Century is the second volume in his work Celebrated Travels and Travelers. It is profusely illustrated and has many maps. The period it deals with is less prolific in wonderful discoveries, but fuller information is accessible concerning those which were made. The voyages of Captain Cook and his predecessors, the exploits of the French navigators and the early African explorations, fill a large portion of the space. Separate chapters are also given to discoveries in Asia and North and South America.
