This is a true account of the author's search for - and discovery of - a "lost tribe" in Papua New Guinea. The author relates his tale of how he journeyed through jungle and up mountain to visit the Liawep tribe, who had had their first contact with the outside world only one year before,in the form of a missionary. He then describes how he was greeted with a mixture of disdain and disapproval by the villagers and by downright hostility from the missionary. The book is a mixture of reportage, history and travel writing recording one man's extraordinary journey to, and time inside, an unknown village. The author's tale reaches a climax when he describes how lightning struck the village, killing a family, and he was held responsible.
