About the Book
Paula Lewis tells the story of an ordinary Australian family who in 1975 took their courage in their hands and left the security and comfort of Australia for a 'Great Adventure' in the Solomon Islands. They purchased a local bus service on the island of Guadalcanal which they ran for fourteen years.
Paula writes about the trials and tribulations of managing a business in the Solomon Islands and adapting to a different way of life. The stories she tells of her husband's courage and determination and the adventures they shared as a family are often hilarious and sometimes sad.
