"From the rainforests of Papua and the Central African Republic to the Himalayan hermit kingdom of Mustang and our own Australian outback.  The Last Tribes on Earth is award-winning journalist Paul Raffaele's adventure packed account of his journey to some of the world's most isolated and endangered peoples and cultures.
With an eye for detail and gentle humour, Raffaele describes the tree-house village of the cannibal Korowai, where he is offered spiders for breakfast and arouses much suspicion when he tries to explain what horses, prostitutes and skyscrapers are.  he is chased by an elephant and challenged by a silverback gorilla while with pygmies in an African rainforest under threat of logging.
ON the back of a Tibetan pony, he makes his way to the remote walled city of Lo Manthang where he chases demons from the city in an age-old festival.  Finally returning to Australia he journeys through the desert with Aranda tribal elders, learns about the Kadaitcha man, a ritual assassin, and seeks out the home of the Rainbow Serpent."
