HARDBOUND VERSION: A YEAR ON THE ISLAND OF GUAM
Hardbound, 8 x 10 inches, 268 pages, 96 historical images, 16 original artistic renderings by Judy Selk Flores, preface and introduction by Jillette Leon-Guerrero. U.S. Navy Lt. William Edwin Safford, the first American Lt. Governor of Guam, was the most prolific and influential public advocate for the people of Guam during the early 1900s—introducing the American public to the island, its culture and people. Several other writers, including U.S. naval officers before and after him, also wrote about the island but none with the force and compassion of Safford. This book not only chronicles his stay on the island but also serves as a primary source of information about Guam and her people at the turn of the Century. Contains historical images and 16 original art renderings by Guam artist Judy Selk Flores, this book is a must for those interested in Guam’s history.
