Just one month after his twenty-first birthday, Peter Rudiak-Gouldmoved to Ujae, a remote atoll in the Marshall Islands located 70miles from the nearest telephone, car, store, or tourist and 2000miles from the closest continent. He spent the next year there,living among its 450 inhabitants and teaching English to itsschoolchildren. At first glance, Surviving Paradise is a thoughtfuland laugh-out-loud hilarious documentation of Rudiak-Goulds effortsto cope with daily life on Ujae as his idealistic expectations of atropical paradise confront harsh reality. But Rudiak-Gould goesbeyond the personal, interweaving his own story with fascinatingpolitical, linguistic and ecological digressions about the MarshallIslands. Most poignant are his observations of the noticeableeffect of global warming on these tiny, low-lying islands and thethreat rising water levels pose to their already precariousexistence.
