Forty years ago, a young New Zealand mountaineer headed into the unknown interior of West New Guinea on one of the last great journeys of exploration. Copiously illustrated, Philip Temple's narrative is one of the great stories from the classical age of exploration, as well as an important anthropological record, for he tells of living with the Dani before their way of life was overtaken by the outside world.
