=== Introduction  ===
+
  
[[Image:Solomon Islands fishermen by WWII wreck.jpg|thumb|right|200px]] The Solomon Islands is a scattered archipelago of mountainous islands and low lying coral atolls in the ''South Pacific''. They lie east of ''Papua New Guinea'' and northeast of Australia. There are over a thousand islands in this archipelago, but not all are inhabited. ''Ontong Java, Rennel'', and ''Santa Cruz ''Islands are part of the group, but lie further to the east. The capital, ''Honiara,'' is on ''Guadalcanal Island'', which also has the highest Mountain. Most Solomon Islanders are Melanesian, with some Polynesians, Tuvaluans, and Chinese immigrants. The Islanders are gardeners. Cattle have been introduced to supplement the copra industry.
