Listing Detail Tabs

Every traveller in the South Pacific has heard of Aggie Grey and her famous hotel. But few know the real story of this afakasi (part-Samoan) woman, whose father was the son of a well-to-do British merchant in Fiji and whose mother was the daughter of a Samoan chief.

AGGIE GREY: A SAMOAN SAGA is the biography of this remarkable woman, at once at odds and strangely in tune with both her own and other cultures, who in the process of overcoming many life crises became a legendary figure in South Pacific lore. Reading like a novel, this biography also puts in its proper perspective the "wild woman" mythology that unjustifiably surrounded Aggie, rendering a complicated and fascinating personal history into a dignified and triumphant life achievement.

Aggie's story is also a real history. Aggie was born into a time and place where some significant history was coming to pass, and her position as innkeeper often allowed her to be the first to hear about the intrigues of local chiefs and European consuls.
