Well i am samoa it is very interesting book. This Samoan novelist, poet, and educator, who has promoted creative writing across the Pacific. Albert Wendt is probably the best-known writer in the South Pacific. Although his works are deeply rooted in the heritage of the Oceanic culture, they also reflect the common experience of people everywhere. Among Wendt's major works is Leaves of the Banyan Tree (1979), an epic spanning three generations and a modern classic work of Pacific literature.
