Cannibalism is either a terrifying social taboo or an accepted way of life—depending, of
course, on who you ask. Michael Rockefeller learned about it the hard way, working his
way through the New Guinea jungle in search of primitive art created by tribes with
beliefs he’d never encountered before. His ultimate disappearance was officially ruled a
drowning, even though headhunting and cannibalism thrived in the area. Hoffman’s book
is a thrilling adventure that crosses cultural and political boundaries, and keeps you on
the edge of your seat.
