Sissano free pdf Excerpt from Sissano: Movements of Migration Within and Through Melanesia In the course of our investigations into the anthropogeography of the Pacific area we are soon brought to recognize that, while a certain thread is drawn through the varying patterns of the fabric, the quality of our information varies widely in the several districts into which that area has been grouped. From a motive of merely temporary convenience it will be just as well to revive from the older systems of geography the once familiar designation "Oceanica," which was added as a sort of supplement to the list of the continents of the world. When first employed the term was intended to gather up all the minor units of the Pacific and adjacent Asiatic sea, so that no part of the earths surface might escape the ritual ceremony of being bounded on the north by this and on the south by that other, and of having a capital situated on such and such river. The mind cramped in youth by that sort of geography - I believe that the thin and very square volume covered in slaty blue paper decorated with the whole world reduced to a pair of pancake twins bore the name of one Monteith -finds the real geography, the kind that lies at the back of beyond, quite unorthodox. It has been given me to find no little geography of the sort which one approaches with sails close-trimmed to a steady trade-wind breeze, which comes upon the sight as first a mere notch upon the horizon in a negative manner of distant vision, then appears a blue cloud which turns to green slopes and mountain peaks arising from the ring of coral and the ever-dancing circlet of thunderous foam. In such geography I confess a particular fondness for Bougainville of the Solomons, the island which should be the particular habitat of the Bougainvillea, but is not, since no one has arisen to provide a Synoptic relation between botany and geography. I have coasted Bougainville through all its length, I have penetrated its interior a dozen miles and thought myself lucky that I could retrace exactly the miles of my inward path from a people who incline to extend a somewhat pressing invitation to dinner in which the relation of guest to viand is quite simply stated in terms of gastronomy. Pond as I am of Bougainville, the influence of a now remote Monteith has been so strongly set in grain that I find myself apologetic because this so shudderingly delightful island of my fancy has no capital upon any river, nothing whatever which can be committed to memory as metropoHs. A charming land, but geographically incomplete. Monteith's Oceanica, as I find myself forced to remember it, began at Sumatra and ended at Sala y Gomez.
