From the Publisher:

“Surrounded by the immense expanse of the Pacific Ocean, over 2000 mile from the nearest inhabited land, tiny Easter Island, with an area of only 46 square miles is incredibly isolated.

The giant statues of Easter Island have fascinated the world, since the island’s discovery by
European explorers, in the early 18th Century. How did a small, isolated society with limited resources, created these magnificent monuments?  How were these statues, some weighing
200 tons, transported for miles across the island?  And, more mysteriously, what role did they
play in the religion and social order of the people who created them?

Illustrated with over 120 color photographs, “Easter Island” is a fascinating exploration of the
history and living culture of this remarkable island.

Carlos Mordo, an anthropologist and researcher who has traveled extensively, studying throughout Latin America and Europe, is the author of numerous books.  His photographs
have been published around the world, in over twenty books.”
