Abstract:

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. Hundreds of specially commissioned pictures taken by a photographer famous 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 and the challenges confronted by these people evoking the island's splendid yet hostile natural environment and depicting the unique uncultivated characteristics of its flora and fauna.
