The rhythm of Islander's lives follows the movement of the constellation Tagai, a mythical hero who stands in a canoe; his left hand, the Southern Cross, holds a fish spear.  The stars of Tagai usher in seasonal changes and are a guide tp voyaging and cultuvating throughout the Torres Strait.  The book explores four meanings of the Tagai myth in the life of the Islanders since the mid-nineteenth century.  Its main focus is a growing identity and self-awareness.
