'An enthralling introduction to the mountain people of New Guinea - unimaginably remote, charming, cunning, cruel, subtle and appealing - and to their magnificent land.' New York Times Book Review 'This book combines an irresistible author with an irresistible subject- Tim Flannery, a great zoologist and writer about science, relating his explorations of New Guinea, a vivid tropical universe...The result is a dangerous book that you pick up at your peril, because it is so hard to put down.' Jared M. Diamond 'Throwim Way Leg is New Guinea pidgin for "go on a journey". It is a book as fantastic as the wildest science fiction novel, as gripping as the darkest thriller and as moving as a love story...Not even Rider Haggard would have dared to tell a story so surprising.' Matt Ridley, Daily Telegraph
