Detailed Product Description
2007, 1st edition. 256 pp. A story of old-fashioned adventure driven purely by curiosity and a refusal to believe that everything has been done. It hasn't. This is a true story of modern day exploration and the discovery of cannibal tribes in the 21st century. It will appeal to anthropologists as much as it will to adventurers and those with a thirst for excitement and humour. From the very start the team found far more hurdles than those just the jungle could throw at them.
 
In the course of their 150-mile journey by dugout canoe and foot through the largest swamp on Earth they dodged police, encountered politically disgruntled ex head-hunters and were pursued by a previously undiscovered clan of the little known Korowai tribe. This was all before they had begun their arduous journey into the mountainous interior of the island and the previously unclimbed south face of Gurlung Mandata, the reason for their expedition. An expedition far more extraordinary than they had ever imagined, one that would stretch them, their friendship and their equipment to the limits. Paperback, includes a DVD of the film CRAMPONS AND CANNIBALS of the expedition!
