Poisoned Arrows: An investigative journey to the forbidden territories of West Papua (Paperback)George Monbiot (author)
- Not available
At great personal risk and with forged travel documents, George Monbiot in 1988 bluffed, cheated and forced his way into the remotest tropical place in the world - the forbidden territories of Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Sealed from the outside world by Indonesian forces, it was home to tribes who were unchanged and unseen for centuries and, along with their forest land, being systematically obliterated.
