For Melissa, my Lisa.
From all outward appearances, the beautiful island was paradise on earth. The lagoon provided a safe harbor for the dugout canoes, and the surrounding coral reef teemed with all kinds of fish. An endless supply of fresh water gushed from mountain streams, which ran swiftly down the side of a sleeping volcano blanketed with the green velvet of lush ferns and tropical vegetation. Colorful hibiscus grew more plentifully than weeds, and juicy mangoes as large as footballs were free for the picking. To the happy tribe of natives who were fortunate enough to live here, the place they called home was the closest thing to heaven they could imagine.
