Star of the Sea

“Do you think we could get a peep inside?” She shook her head. “We haven't
been invited, and I wouldn't presume. This could be their most sacred place, for
all we know.” “It could also,” he said, dryly, “be the location of the portal.”

“My name is Cassandra. My mother was the Walker.” The peace and stability of Stella Maris have been lost, perhaps forever. Weeks after Delia Walker found the remote world, trailing murderers and soldiers in her wake, more ships are coming. And now the impossible: a young woman claiming to be Walker’s daughter has come out of the Weird portal, demanding passage off the planet. For Cassandra, her mother’s former young charge Failt, and the cynical, worldly-wise Yale, a desperate race begins to reach the very heart of the Expansion and avert a disaster. On Stella Maris – the “star of the sea” – a fight has begun to preserve the refuge and its fragile harmony from those who would exploit it.

When dusk came and I heard the tribal drums beating the stars in far away up in the forest villages, I thought, Here at least I shall find rest from the hot-footed turbulency of civilized humanity; here I can dwell ! beneath the Eden-like shades of feathery palms, and listen to the wind-blown melodies as they come in from the sea and run across the island trees. I revelled in such like thoughts. I felt that I had come across a pagan world where no more should I hear servile mumblings of a conventional people. I would peer into savage bright eyes and listen to the poetic lore of people who worshipped at the shrine of the stars and counted their days by the fading moons.... -from "Chapter I: Samoa: First Impressions" Subtitled "The Romantic Adventures of a Modern Don Quixote in the Southern Seas," this charming 1919 work chronicles not only a journeys through the islands by one young man full of the "ardent, adventurous spirit of youth," it's also a fascinating resource on Polynesian gods and goddesses, myths and legends as seen through the eyes of a Westerner. Sharing the stories of the distant past and the unparalleled experiences of his own that he collected on his voyages, the author weaves an enchanting tale-and a mostly true one, he assures us-of a tropical paradise just as it was on the verge of being subsumed by Western culture. OF INTEREST TO: armchair travelers, amateur anthropologists, readers of crosscultural studies AUTHOR BIO: British author, composer, and playwright ARNOLD SAFRONI-MIDDLETON (b. 1873) wrote numerous books of travel adventure, including Sailor and Beachcomber: Confessions of a Life at Sea, in Australia and Amid the Islands of the Pacific (1915), Sestrina: A Romance of the South Seas (1921), and Tropic Shadows (1927).
