Spice Islands — Time for a Celebration!

Man and Mountain 2 - Copy

Man, Mountain, T Shirt, Book

It is three years since Spice Islands was first published and it is time for a small celebration — with some bubbles!
In July 2011, I received the advance copies of Spice Islands.
Imagine the excitement of holding the results of so many years of effort in my hands — 200 pages of text with 50 color images — and thanks to Rosenberg Publishing for delivering such high production values.
The reviews were good and how could I forget Brian Geech from the Townsville Bulletin describing Spice Islands as a ‘triumph of passion and scholarship’.
The hardback first edition sold out last year and a second printing in paperback is now available. Spice Islands has also made the transition to e-books and is now available in Kindle and other formats.
It has been a great experience, it lead to the Spice Islands Sailing Adventures with SeaTrek Sailing Adventures and has allowed me to meet so many interesting people.

Cheers !!!
