One of those rare books that has haunted the general intelligentsia of Papua New Guinea as a new and independent sovereign state for the last three decades.

A book that many of the earlier generations of the 1960s and 1970s of Papua Guinea New Guinea grew up with.

 Indeed, a rare kind of book that finds its home only in the libraries of book lovers that love the cultures of Papua New Guinea.

And yet, the kind of book that appears once every three decades then disappears as quickly as it appears.

Always, it is wise to grab a copy.

Or wait another three decades for a rare chance such as this.
