Reviews of "More Curious than Cautious -A Survivor's Adventure Through Paradise"

"Best damn book on Polynesia I've ever read. Period. You can feel the sand between your toes and feel the warmth of the native people's smiles."
- Tim Franey, BSEE, BSIE, MBA, CIRM (CPCC March 2007), ACC. World Traveler and Silicon Valley Executive.

"Smiling, beguiling author and watercolorist Peter Fraser takes us with him on a barefoot trip to teach in post-WW II Polynesia. Native hospitality and his ready wit made him welcome in all nations alike. Keeps you hoping it will never end."
- Richard (Rick) Tullis, MD, Scripps Hospital La Jolla.

Peter Fraser was born in 1925, on Long Island, New York. He earned a B.A. in Anthropology and Sociology at Cornell University, and an M.S. in Education at Hofstra College, New York. He studied French, Spanish, Portuguese German, and Italian. He added courses including History of Fine Arts and Architecture. He taught middle school level in both public and private schools in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Arizona, New York, and Western Samoa. Peter's favorite subject to teach was Ancient History where the class enjoyed learning about what they could still see in "tourist Europe." He has visited over 125 countries, and hitch hiked in many of them. He has sailed across much of the Pacific Ocean, both as a crew member, and as a passenger. He has written articles for international travel magazines. He moved to San Diego in 2004.
