The island at the end of the earth

The Pacific island of Palmerston is one of the most isolated in the world.
It is visited by a supply ship at most twice a year and the long, arduous and potentially dangerous journey puts off all but the most intrepid visitors.
Tiny Palmerston, part of the Cook Islands, is home to a community of 62 people.
Incredibly all but three of its current inhabitants are descended from one man, Englishman William Marsters, who moved to the island 150 years ago.
