Lost Among the Baining: Adventure, Marriage, and Other Fieldwork

In the late sixties, Gail Pool and her husband set off to live with the Baining, an isolated people in Papua New Guinea. He was a graduate student in anthropology; she was an aspiring writer. Many people warned them against this trip, pointing to the stresses of the rugged mountain terrain, their own isolation, and the mystery of the Baining, about whom little was known. But just two years out of college, they were too young to take anyone's advice. They felt thrilled by the challenge.<br /><br />The couple stayed for sixteen months--slogging through mud, battling huge insects, arguing with each other. But they never felt they understood the very different culture of their enigmatic hosts. Back home, Pool put away her journals; her husband left the field of anthropology. They viewed the trip as a fiasco. Yet this powerful experience stayed with them; it had never come to a close. Decades later, they knew they had to return to the people who had changed their lives.<br /><br />Pool's memoir looks back with wry humor on this journey to the bush. Writing at a distance, she can laugh at the innocent youngsters, appreciate the Baining who took care of them—and welcomed them back—and comprehend the limits of knowing another culture.<br />

ROMANZO (287 pagine) - NARRATIVA - Cosa succede nel cuore e nella mente di quattro ragazzi che per motivi diversi affrontano un viaggio in una terra lontana e sconosciuta? I quattro protagonisti di questo romanzo non hanno nulla in comune, se non la giovane età. Non si conoscono e provengono da Paesi diversi. A unirli è la loro destinazione, la Nuova Zelanda, e lo scopo del loro viaggio: la ricerca di un futuro migliore o semplicemente di qualcosa di straordinario, scegliendo di visitare città e luoghi agli antipodi rispetto alle loro terre di origine. Leonardo è unragazzo romano che parte per la Nuova Zelanda alla ricerca di un'avventura, di un lavoro, di una vita migliore, lasciandosi alle spalle le delusioni del suo Paese. Fernanda è un'argentina con una voglia smisurata di libertà e di vita senza regole, che esce finalmente da casa sua a Buenos Aires per vivere una vita da nomade in compagnia della sua macchina fotografica. Poi c'è Jonas, un diciottenne tedesco che si concede un anno sabbatico dopo il liceo prima di tornare a studiare all'Università, sperimentando per la prima volta la vita solitaria lontano dalla famiglia. Infine Julien, un parigino che si ferma in Nuova Zelanda per alcuni mesi prima di proseguire il suo viaggio in Cina, non prima di rendersi conto delle bellezze del Paese in cui si trattiene. Francesco Giannelli Savastano vive a Roma ed è appassionato di sport, ambito nel quale ha trovato subito lavoro: è insegnante di tennis e di rugby e tiene lezioni di fitness. dora viaggiare, soprattutto tra le grandi e le piccole città d'Europa. Lettore compulsivo, non parte mai senza un libro in mano. Ha vissuto e lavorato per un anno in Nuova Zelanda, esperienza che lo ha profondamente segnato.

<p>The mysterious disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in New Guinea in 1961 has kept the world and his powerful, influential family guessing for years. Now, Carl Hoffman uncovers startling new evidence that finally tells the full, astonishing story.</p><p>Despite exhaustive searches, no trace of Rockefeller was ever found. Soon after his disappearance, rumors surfaced that he'd been killed and ceremonially eaten by the local Asmat—a native tribe of warriors whose complex culture was built around sacred, reciprocal violence, head hunting, and ritual cannibalism. The Dutch government and the Rockefeller family denied the story, and Michael's death was officially ruled a drowning. Yet doubts lingered. Sensational rumors and stories circulated, fueling speculation and intrigue for decades. The real story has long waited to be told—until now.</p><p>Retracing Rockefeller's steps, award-winning journalist Carl Hoffman traveled to the jungles of New Guinea, immersing himself in a world of headhunters and cannibals, secret spirits and customs, and getting to know generations of Asmat. Through exhaustive archival research, he uncovered never-before-seen original documents and located witnesses willing to speak publically after fifty years.</p><p>In <em>Savage Harvest</em> he finally solves this decades-old mystery and illuminates a culture transformed by years of colonial rule, whose people continue to be shaped by ancient customs and lore. Combining history, art, colonialism, adventure, and ethnography, <em>Savage Harvest</em> is a mesmerizing whodunit, and a fascinating portrait of the clash between two civilizations that resulted in the death of one of America's richest and most powerful scions.</p>

<b>A CLASSIC FROM THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF <i>ONE SUMMER </i></b><br /><br />Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller <i>A Walk in the Woods</i>. <i>In A Sunburned Country</i> is his report on what he found in an entirely different place: Australia, the country that doubles as a continent, and a place with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiousity.<br /><br />Despite the fact that Australia harbors more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else, including sharks, crocodiles, snakes, even riptides and deserts, Bill Bryson adores the place, and he takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond that beaten tourist path. Wherever he goes he finds Australians who are cheerful, extroverted, and unfailingly obliging, and these beaming products of land with clean, safe cities, cold beer, and constant sunshine fill the pages of this wonderful book. Australia is an immense and fortunate land, and it has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
