Jonathan Willis-Richards has a wonderful site about Kiribati called "The Kiribati Home Page". In it he's collected information on Kiribati basic facts; books and stories; history; communications; arts and crafts; news and newspapers; politics; language and customs; the people of Kiribati; the islands; commerce and taxation; economics and development; government, law, and labour; ecology and environment; religion and mythology; and travel.

[We were very happy to note that, according to this site, "Coconuts cover most islands..."]
