I was a little disappointed in this. I read the original article in Moment Magazine which sparked an interest in learning more. You see, the article started to go into depth, but left you hanging at the end. Is it really possible that a lost Jewish tribe and the Ark of the Covenant made it to one of the most remote corners of the Earth, the Solomon Islands?
So, I bought the "book" online and downloaded it to my iPad. It is a fairly brief narrative. The author is intrigued by the prospects of finding the Ark, so he books flights and goes to the Solomon Islands.
He arrives to little fanfare. The travel through the Island is sparse at best, and there is really no travel to where he needs to go other than by water, over land, but there are no roads or airports. When he arrives at his destination, he encounters a people who recite Hebrew prayers and speak of the Ark.
But, does he find anything to corroborate his theories? In short, no. He does not find "Solomon's Temple", which he thinks he might find. He finds no Ark, nor a mention of where it could be. He does a nice job recounting the story of his travel which was very interesting. But, he does not solve the mystery. He doesn't even really paint a compelling case for a reason to continue or fund a search.
The end of the story is as unremarkable as the rest of it. He leaves the islands saying he will probably not return. That ends the story.
