About this Item

Re-set, enlarged and revised 2010 edition of the 1995 first edition. 43 b&w photographs, map, bibliography, index. John Fowke was an Officer in PNG's colonial administration and later began a long association with that country's coffee industry as a staff member of the Coffee Industry Corporation [CIC]. This book is based largely upon taped interviews made with the late Danny Leahy whilst he was living in the Highlands. This biography is also of Queensland interest as the Leahys hail from Toowoomba and Tipperary .Review by Alex Golub, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of Hawai'i at Manoa. For years FIRST CONTACT by Connolly and Anderson has been a beloved story of highlands Papua New Guineans encounter with the 'outside world', read and watched throughout the world both in the classroom and for pleasure. Now we are lucky to have KUNDI DAN by John Fowke, to complete the tale. Much more than his brother Mick, Dan Leahy's deep connection with highlanders led him to live a life which spanned the history of modern Papua New Guinea. Fowke's detailed knowledge of the highlands and his no-nonsense prose finally makes Dan's story accessible to all. For anyone interested in history, anthropology, Papua New Guinea, or simply a great read, Kundi Dan is a must. 250 p. Bookseller Inventory # 039425
