Nearly one year after we started working intensively on the book it is finally published and available for sale. My co-author, Eric Madeja, and I traveled to Indonesia, Timor Leste, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines as we collected stories and images for the book. We met some really wonderful people along the way and had incalculable support and assistance from friends and loved ones.
Writing this book was an adventure. It turns out that I enjoy writing but it is a painful process! Who would have guessed that it would be that hard.
