This is where during WWII blockbuster author James A. Michener wrote his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Tales of the South Pacific upon which the famous stage show and movie South Pacific was based.

The EscapeArtist Vanuatu electronic magazine offers articles and news stories written about all things Vanuatu and welcomes local content contributor writers such as Alcina Charlie from the Vanuatu Tourism Office. Peter Taylor, vice-president of Carnival Cruise Lines has an interesting interview in which he relates how their cruise ships leave a very small "footprint" on an unspoiled coast. Rick Buckton, architect and designer of over 25 golf and residential developments throughout the USA, is now designing developments in Vanuatu. He shares his personal family involvement going back to 1945 in this country that was then known as the New Hebrides before independence in 1980.
