The Pacific

This vast Region, the Pacific, is really a mixed Geographical bag.

It is made up of Continental Islands and Island chains and is home

to about eight million people with many languages and cultures.


The Pacific Region is probably the most diverse of any and as such,

does not fit comfortably into just one neat little category.

Some group it in with Asian Regions, while others try

to squeeze it in with the Americas.


Where ever this Region ends up, it is one very unique area

and quite worthy of having its own category.


These web sites will take you to the Region called

the Pacific and share its unique history with you:
