Osa Johnson's 20 years of ramb- UM-Ul'S ling in Oceania, Australasia and Africa with lier late explorer-husband, Martin Johnson, brought her the rightful and hard-earned title of "America's First Lady of Exploration." Rightful, because she has been places where no other woman has been, and few would want to bo. Hard-earned, because she hud to keep pace with n rugged husband, over muddy, snake-and-lnsect-ln- feslcd jungle trails, sharing the ever-present danger o( being skewered by a native spear. Her now book, "llrlile In the Solo mons" (lloughton-Mifflln: 53.00) vvll) delight and at the same time soothe the frustrated nrmchah explorer. The Solomons, even In peace times, were hardly Idyllic and better to read about than bt In, although Mrs. Johnson found much that was beautiful and passes it on In colorful and convincing prose. Scorpions, poisonous lizards slinging ants, hornets, deadly ceil' tlpedes and the malaria mosquil< were as much a part of her lifi in the Islands as were the lusl orchids, gaudy parrots, and trop teal sunsets. QUARRY: CANNIBALS Mrs. Johnson, a bride who 1m to learn her cooking in a part the world where a gas-range wa unknown and would have been use less, came up to the Solomons froi Sydney with Martin lo photograp head-hunters and cannibals. It' ha never been done, and island off cials shook their heads at sue Yankee brashncss. But they g their pictures, which illustrate the book, and Mrs. Johnson, a good reporter, gathered a profusion of material for what turned out to be a fascinating monograph on the marriage, religious, and economic customs of a people still so savage that ten years after her visit, they murdered her host at Mnlaila, and his staff of 12 as well. One final note: There's quite a bit of pidgin English employed in the dialogue, enough .50 Hint you may find yourself mumbling, "You no go along big house belong Master ... me takmn this one fellah canoe belong you." But It's simple enough. Master the one key word, "belong," and you're all set to go along with Mrs. Johnson.
