This book is an account of a search in 1980 in the Nusa Tenggara Islands of Indonesia to find a suitable island for the Vietnamese Boat People to settle and start a new life. They were pouring out of Vietnam on anything that would float and thousands were perishing. The world was demanding that something be done...Most of the search was island hopping on a Balinese cow transporter made from a single tree trunk.
