    Mercedes Maroto Camino presents the first study of cross-cultural engagements between the indigenous peoples of the Pacific and Spanish explorers during the early modern period. Bridging disciplines, the book analyses in detail eight main voyages, their aims and outcomes, looking at the different patterns of contact and the use of gift-giving and bartering as social cement. The voyages include Ferdinand Magellan's circumnavigation and Gonzalez' expedition to Easter Island in 1770.
