Abstract:This book is based on a compilation of 70 life stories collected on Rotuma in 1960. It is divided into two volumes. Volume 1 consists of the life stories arranged by age and gender, ranging from the oldest people then in their 70s to the youngest ones in their 20s. Volume 2 consists of an analysis of the various life stages, ranging from childhood to old age. It draws on the life stories with additional material from our research to provide historical and ethnographic background for each chapter. We have written the book primarily for the younger generation of Rotumans in order to convey a better idea of what life was like for earlier generations on the island.
