A DEATH IN THE RAINFOREST
How a language and a way of life came to an end in Papua New Guinea


Don Kulick is an anthropologist who has spent some 30 years visi­ting an isolated community in Papua New Guinea trying to learn the language and the culture, making friends, but also dodging ambushes and witnessing deep changes to the villagers’ way of life.
