More About This Book

Overview

In this autobiography the co-author of Mutiny on the Bounty, Pitcairn's Island and other tales of adventure in the South Pacific tells his story in a delightfully casual style. From the "woodshed poet" writing youthful lines on the walls of the family outhouse in Colfax, Iowa, through his career with both the infantry and air services in WWI, to his life on Tahiti and long friendship with Charles Nordhoff, Hall holds the interest of his audience.

Almost everyone is familiar with Hall's work, but few know that his life was more exciting than the historical events he writes about. MY ISLAND HOME is a candid recounting of his adventures, told in a frank and modest manner.

About the Author

James Norman Hall (1887-1951)—adventurer, soldier, pursuit pilot, author, essayist and poet—was born in the Iowa town of Colfax on April 22, 1887, graduating from Grinnell College in 1910. He served in World War I as a lance corporal machine gunner and as an aviator. From 1920 until his death in 1951, James Norman Hall lived in Arue, Tahiti where he wrote in his beloved library at home, often collaborating with Charles Nordhoff on books like The Bounty and The Hurricane. There he married and had two children.
