Book Meme

Got tagged!
Thanks to Peeling a Pomegranate for this...
The meme:
1) Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages) to you.
2) Open to page 123.
3) Find the 5th sentence.
4) Post the next 3 sentences.
5) Tag "x" number of people (Do what thou wilt with that one).
"Fortunately, that deficiency was spectacularly remedied on Pitcairn, the much smaller (2 1/2 square miles) and steeper extinct volcanic island lying 300 miles southeast of Mangareva.
 Imagine the excitement when the first canoeload of Mangarevans discovered Pitcairn after several days' travel on the open ocean, landed at its only feasible beach, scrambled up the steep slopes, and came upon Down Rope Quarry, Southeast Polynesia's sole usable load of volcanic glass, whose flakes could serve as sharp tools for fine cutting tasks - the Polynesian equivalent of scissors and scalpels. 
Their excitement would have turned to ecstasy when, barely a mile farther west along the coast, they discovered the Tautama lode of fine-grained basalt, which became Southeast Polynesia's biggest quarry for making adzes."
Thank you Ketzirah Carly!
