The Ultimate Orient − The Quest for the Perfect Pearl

Author : Cynthia Unninayar

The often overcast skies of a small port in the Brittany region of northwestern France quickly gave way to the call of the open seas for the young Jacques Branellec. From navigator to commercial pilot to environmentalist pearl farmer to community leader, the book chronicles the trials and tribulations, and often death-defying challenges—both from Nature and man—that Branellec experienced during his many adventure-filled travels around the globe. The story is also filled with love and laughter, friendship and family, philosophy and wisdom. The first steps of the young man's journey took Branellec initially to North America, then to the lost atolls of Tahiti, where this professional pilot constructed airstrips against all odds, thus opening the islands to the world.
