“The human history of Australasia is the story of people struggling to survive in lands they don’t understand.  Forty million years of physical isolation have produced a bizarre geology and climate.  Australia is a land of lizards and crocodiles.  In New Guinea kangaroos’ live in the treetops; and titanic birds known as moas roamed the Islands of New Zealand.  The first Australasians altered these lands in ways that we find inconceivable today.  The European impact is even more formidable.
This encounter of humans with their environment is the genesis of all human history, yet such a history has never before been told.  The Future Eaters is the story of how human cultures are shaped by the environment they find themselves in and the inevitable events that surround the invasion of a native land.”
