Four Corners, Into the Heart of New Guinea

An adventurous, ambitious journey to Papua New Guinea in the wake of British explorer Ivan Champion, who traversed the island in 1927. Clearly addicted to travel -- and seeking danger -- Salak combines an account of her solo adventures with personal memoir.

Author: Kira Salak

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"Kira Salak undertook an epic, solo jungle trek across the remote Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea--often called the last frontier of adventure travel. Traveling by dugout canoe and on foot, experiencing the dangers and wonders of a largely untouched world, she became the first woman to traverse PNG. Salak stayed in villages where cannibalism was still practiced behind the backs of the missionaries, meeting mysterious witch doctors and befriending the leader of the OPM guerrilla movement who fought against the Indonesian occupation of Western New Guinea. This first-hand encounter has been my favorite read that covers this area." - Wendy Klausner
