A new history book about when Germans lived in Samoa prior to independence has just been released in Apia.

Titled 'To Walk Under Palm Trees', the book is a result of five years work and contains rare photos with many pictures sourced from private family collections.

Samoan author Tony Brunt told Sara Vui-Talitu more about the hard copy book launch and his motivations for doing it.
