One day, a high chief named Aumalosi came to visit from nearby Letui village. The chief came back day after day, month after month, walking the 4 miles each way, and the syllables turned into long passages.
Paul learned that Aumalosi was reciting local proverbs and excerpts of speeches from high chiefs. By then, Paul could speak enough Samoan to apologize for being unable to do the lesson.
He emptied the contents of a woven coconut-leaf basket onto the mat: Aumalosi had gone to the local district store and spent all his money on food the American could eat.
Paul left Samoa after two years and returned to his studies at Brigham Young University, graduating valedictorian with a degree in philosophy and botany. He went on to earn degrees in ecology and biology at the University of Wales and Harvard where he also twice won the Bowdoin Prize for essay writing, a feat earlier accomplished by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

It turns out he had complimented the ancient queen on her private parts. When visiting indigenous people for the first time, Paul believes, you should assume the role of a puppy that just made a mess on the rug.
Paul sent the tea to researchers at the National Cancer Institute, who found that its powerful antiviral qualities could relieve the infection in T-cells.
Years later, supermodel Christie Brinkley held a fundraiser for him in New York. He then worked with the U. Later, he brought his wife and four young children to Samoa. They stayed for a year, living without plumbing or electricity in a fale, or thatch hut.
They were supposed to blend in, but while they were there the villagers faced a terrible dilemma: The only way to pay for the school was to sell their 30,acre forest to loggers. Paul convinced the chiefs to halt the logging while he made a quick trip back to the States to raise the money.
The school was built, the forest preserved. But Paul has defied convention at every turn.
