520    "The islands of Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia 
       stretch across thousands of miles of ocean and encompass a
       multitude of different peoples. Starting with Captain 
       James Cook, the earliest European explorers to visit the 
       Pacific were astounded and perplexed to find populations 
       thriving thousands of miles from continents. Who were 
       these people? From where did they come? And how were they 
       able to reach islands dispersed over such vast tracts of 
       ocean? In Voyagers, the distinguished anthropologist 
       Nicholas Thomas charts the course of the seaborne 
       migrations that populated the islands between Asia and the
       Americas from late prehistory onwards. Drawing on the 
       latest research, including insights gained from genetics, 
       linguistics, and archaeology, Thomas provides a dazzling 
       account of these long-distance migrations, the sea-going 
       technologies that enabled them, and the societies that 
       they left in their wake"--|cProvided by publisher.
