At great personal risk and with forged travel documents, George Monbiot bluffed, cheated and forced his way into the remotest tropical place in the world – the forbidden territories of Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Sealed from the outside world by Indonesian forces, it was home to tribes who were unchanged and unseen for centuries - and, along with their forest land, being systematically obliterated.

It is stunning . . . he ran great personal risks, living under false identities and suffering extraordinary tropical fits—but the strength of the book is that he resists the twin temptations of humourless campaigning and macho bragging . . . . It is far more than a travel book, yet as entertaining as any. Don’t miss it

- Sunday Express

George Monbiot’s fresh, often amusing account offsets the young author’s wonder at the untouched natural beauty of the place with his horror at the systematic genocide being waged against its ancient tribal culture
