[A] splendid history.-- "American Historical Review" Rogers has written a first-rate history of the American territory of Guam and its Chamorro inhabitants. . . . [He] skillfully weaves his narrative around the anthropological theme of 'the parable of the tribes'--the tendency of resilient, nonpower-based societies to adapt to the culture of modern, power-based societies in order to survive. . . . A fascinating, well-written work. . .. Highly recommended.-- "Choice" A definitive reference work on the subject of Guam. . . . Replete with a panoply of colorful incidents, written in an easy style that eschews academic prose, and sprinkled with colorful colloquialisms . . . Destiny's Landfall should hold the attention of the most jejune undergraduate student. For the serious scholar of Pacific Island history, it furnishes far more than just a comprehensive coverage of Guam because of its many references linking Guam developments with those in other island areas. And its inclusion of a vast array of detail, fleshing out the broader sweep of Guam's history, should make this book a useful reference source for all.-- "Isla: A Journal of Micronesian Studies"
