Getting Stoned with Savages chronicles the misadventures of Troost when he and his wife move to the Islands of Vanuatu. There he discovers kava, a native drink that gives a languorous high to all those who partake of the shell, acclimates himself to island life, though he cannot quite comprehend the cannibalistic practices of the islands, and deals with centipedes the size of house cats. Gross.
When his wife gets pregnant, they decide to move to a slightly more civilized place, Fiji, where he learns the sad truth that the super bowl and football are for wussies and rugby is for real men. Enjoy!
