In an era in which explorers can use cell phones to call from the peaks of the Himalayas, Irian Jaya and Papua New Guinea have somehow remained untouched by "civilization." There are still hundreds of unknown populations in Irian Jaya, many of which are dying out. This volume introduces readers to this place that is the reign of the last men of the earth. Readers are transported into the sole remaining pockets of prehistory, untouched by time and nature, where they are given a glimpse into the lives of the people of this untamed Eden. This heritage of humanity, which will probably not withstand the advance of modernity, is examined thoroughly in a compelling text written by a journalist who specializes in in-depth anthropological research. Hundreds of specially commissioned pictures taken by a photographer renowned for his daring reportage from every corner of the globe bring to life this remarkable vestige of prehistory. Through authoritative text and unsurpassed photography, this book investigates the everyday lives of and challenges confronted by these people; evokes the island’s splendid yet hostile natural environment; and depicts the unique uncultivated characteristics of its flora and fauna.
