'John Singe first arrived at Thursday Island in 1970. Peopled by many wild and wonderful characters, this tropical paradise proved to be no place for the faint-hearted.
'As a diver, John Singe survived shark attacks and frequently faced the Strait’s unpredictable moods when sailing the waters from Cape York to Papua New Guinea. Hunting and fishing expeditions also provided him with an unexpected education.
'As well as charting one man’s Indiana Jones-like adventures, this entertaining book voyages across contemporary Islander cultures and lifestyles.
'Much more than a travel saga, My Island Home traces the rewarding journey of its author who continues to be drawn irresistibly to the gregarious people and unlimited horizons of Torres Strait.' (Publication summary)
