Intensely thorough ... An exhaustive examination of the
pre-European navigational system which should fill any scholar's
need ... Succeeds admirably.-- "The Northern Mariner"
The strength of this work lies with the islanders who instructed Lewis in their techniques of navigation.... Lewis successfully distills abstract navigational concepts into a well-organized and interesting text.... We, the Navigators is a work of great depth, and one of the most detailed investigations of an ancient art that is being lost forever. Through it one gains insight into the rich history of long-distance and inter-island voyaging in the Pacific.-- "Mariners' Museum Journal"
