Book Description


A tasty panoply of events and characters who passed through or lived on the Sepik River and elsewhere in Papua New Guinea.
There are observations about kiaps (patrol officers), crocodile shooter and politician John Pasquarelli, traders, anthropologists (even Margaret Mead!) and local people.

Chu Leong set up business in Marienberg on the Sepik River in 1930. His eldest son was killed by American aircraft fire on the ill-fated internee-packed Dorish Maru in 1944. His daughters and other sons suffered Japanese occupation on the Keram River … Anna ran her father’s trade store, mixed with officers on an idyllic colonial outpost and saw independence in Wewak in 1975. She survived the threats and gunfire of the Bougainville Revolutionary Army in 1989 …

A rare memoir by a New Guinea person.
