She is then taken to another tropical island where she is inducted into a new way of life especially when the tribal chief takes her as his third wife. Now she has to contend with a different outlook on sex, the attentions of a ferocious chief from another Island and the cannibalistic customs of her new family of these Island headhunters. Her life changes drastically when, swimming naked in the cool waters of a jungle pool, she is discovered by a visiting white fisherman. Read how her husband takes retribution according to tribal custom!
