Sailing to the South Pacific, whether from California or Panama, the first landfall is the Marquesas. Joe Russell, who has lived and sailed in the Marquesas, documents this beautiful little-known place. Volcanic, tropical beauty and ease of navigation, make these islands some of the most interesting and dramatic cruising grounds in the world. The Marquesans-the island's greatest asset-are proud of their history. They presume friendship with everyone, sharing their legends and traditions.
Includes history, language guide, chart diagrams, mileage and heading tables, and recent archeology.

Joe Russell grew up in the San Francisco Bay area where he attended Cal State Hayward. After being injured in a hydroplane accident, he took to sailing on the Bay, which, in 1968, led to a yacht delivery job to the Virgin Islands where he set up residence. While living in the Caribbean Joe sailed to most of the countries of Central and South America. Joe's articles on Central America have been featured in Cruising World magazine. Joe is author of Exploring the Marquesas Islands. Joe currently lives in Half Moon Bay, California with his wife and first mate, Mary. He is the father of four and a recent grandfather of twins.Review:
"Joe Russell gives cruisers the needed ingredients of all guides--how to do it and where to go, but by writing in the first person he has also spiced up his book with many uninhibited personal experiences. This is a must reference for those wanting to thoroughly enjoy their first landfall on the famous Coconut Milk Run." --Earl Hinz, author, Landfalls of Paradise --Cruising Guide to the Pacific Islands
