Marsters’ Palmerston – Cook Islands


Digital Download – 500 kilometers north-west of Rarotonga lies the atoll of Palmerston, only two square kilometers in size. It sits like a delicate necklace in the blue body of the Pacific. Though  Captain Cook  arrived on Palmerston in 1777, it was William Marsters – a ship’s carpenter and barrel maker – who arrived in 1863, complete with two Polynesian wives who has made this island a story tellers’ and a historian’s gem.
