2: Spice Island Saga
Lome and Lawrence Blair , two young Englishmen, voyage in a trading schooner through the far-flung Spice Islands. Once, the nutmeg and cloves from these parts lured the West into the age of discovery; Columbus was looking for these islands when he stumbled on the Americas.

Indeed, their whole voyage is one through a remote and tropical paradise.... Film editors
