The memorial edition of David Robie's Eyes of Fire is an in-depth look at the last voyage of the Rainbow Warrior. Originally published in 1986, it brings the era to life in a way that a more retrospective book could do. Robie himself lived that last journey through the Pacific as a journslist on board the Warrior, and New Zealanders are the luckier fact for that.
