Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 043590969X, Paperback)

"You will become part of village life, which mean they will become responsible for you, but also that you will be responsible for them. That is what we understand by the word wantok."

Working in the development program in the Pacific region, Richard Green finds himself increasingly embroiled in local feuds. His idealistic notion of helping the islanders disintegrates as his neo-colonial role becomes apparent. Instead, he is taken back to memories of his early-and devastating-years in colonial Kenya, bringing a dawning realization that he can never truly be wantok.
