Mack, Andrew L.

In the wilderness of Papua New Guinea, Andy Mack completed some of the first in-depth and long-term ecological studies ever undertaken in Melanesia. After decades of research, he came away with insights into conservation, economic development, and the global politics of earth stewardship. This book is the story of Andy’s personal and scientific journey. His adventure is akin to stepping through a portal into a time and place where ancient cultures clash with modern sensibilities, of surviving in a country where there is no access to electricity, health care, roads, telephones, or police, all while searching for a dinosaur-like bird, some species of which can reach 6 feet, weigh 55kg, and are one of the few birds that can easily kill people.
