'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
