Daniel L. Haynes,
Nina Mae McKinney,
A mummy's curse sends Dr. George Henry's spirit into an creepy underworld inhabited by monsters and it's up to Henry's son to save him. Based on Bruce Zick's book, "The Anubis Tapestry: Between Twilights".
Customs of Polynesian natives on a Samoan island, centered on the daily life and on the coming of age ceremony of the young man Moana. It reconstructs Polynesian culture before the coming of Western culture, though iron blades are used. Daily tasks like cooking, fishing, hunting and gathering are most of the picture.
Mainly interesting for the material settings. Flaherty treats the Samoan life as almost that of a paradise - the only discomforts being wild boar and the pain of tattooing.
