The word 'paradise' has been more consistently applied to the mid-Pacific islands than to any other region on earth", writes William Price in his book "Adventures in Paradise".

On or off the beaten track, in French, British or American territory, whether he is talking to a hobo or a High Commissioner, watching fire-walking in Fiji, meeting a son of Gauguin in Tahiti, or in the arms of an octopus under Samoan waters, Willard Price extracts the maximum interest out of a situation with a minimum of fuss.

His book is a unique time capsule of life in the South Pacific in the 1950s. Much has changed in the intervening years but not at VILLA MAMANA on tropical Telekivava'u where time has stood still where time begins.
