Published: William Morrow Paperbacks - March 10th, 2015

The disappearance of 23 year old Michael Rockefeller in 1961 while on an expedition in New Guinea caused a sensation and wild speculation. Fifty years later, Hoffman retraces Rockefeller's journey. Staying in the same villages and meeting the Asmat people, he discovered a culture little understood by the West and based on our greatest taboos. This is more than a story of a young man's death; it tells of how Western hubris set in motion events with grave repercussions. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
