Detailed Product Description
NZ, 2007, 1st edition. Color photos.  The age of exploration came to an end in the 1960s, when the solar topee, compass and trouble-with-the-natives gave way to satellite surveillance and helicopters. Fifty years ago, a young New Zealand mountaineer headed into the unknown interior of West New Guinea (now Irian Jaya) on one of the last great journeys of exploration. New paperback (only edition.)

SIGNED by Philip Temple.
 
 
Traveling at first with the legendary German mountaineer, Heinrich Harrer (author of Seven Years in Tibet), Philip Temple made the first ascent of the Carstensz Pyramid, which has come to be regarded as the technically most difficult of the 'Seven Summits of the Seven Continents'. Later he was the last to witness the tool-making rituals of a stone-age culture before it was overtaken by the modern world.
 
Facing daunting physical odds, he went on to explore a swathe of unmapped central New Guinea Highlands, and he risked his life to recover the human remains from a US aircraft that had crashed on a sheer mountain. Copiously illustrated, Philip Temple's narrative is one of the great stories from the classical age of exploration. Dramatic, humorous and colorful, it is also a valuable anthropological record, for he tells of living among the Dani people before their primitive way of life was overtaken by the outside world. New paperback (only edition.)

SIGNED by Philip Temple.
