About the Book
As well as being the story of a man displaying a pioneer spirit, this is also a story of adventure. As he moved from one opportunity to the next in a young country, whatever he achieved, he was motivated by a desire to be an honest and good man, and underlying everything, a desire to be self sufficient.
After building up a life on a tiny island far from home, the world gradually pulled him back. After all, no man is an island, even if he lives on one. But despite this he still held on to his dream, of building his own boat, so he could enjoy the one pass time that he loved so much as a young man in Germany: to sail.

Duncan Menge has travelled extensively through Australia and overseas. He shoots mainly with compact cameras, allowing him to capture his images candidly and intimately. In 1998-99, Menge travelled through Morocco, India and Nepal, spending several months documenting the people he met on film. Using this medium he wishes to show a culture as he sees it, in images that could have been taken fifty or even a hundred years ago.
