Summary
  • Maps on endpapers
  • Carl Hoffman recounts his journey to explore the mystery surrounding the decades-old disappearance of Michael C. Rockefeller in New Guinea, which has kept the world and his family guessing since 1961. Tracing Rockefeller's steps, Hoffman uncovers an epic story of adventure, danger, native tribes, and taboo rituals including cannibalism and head hunting
Summary
In 1961, a scion of the powerful Rockefeller family, 23-year-old Michael, disappeared during an expedition to Dutch New Guinea where'd he planned to study a primitive tribe and gather art for a museum that his father -- the governor of New York -- had founded. Michael's body was never found, and officials ruled that he had drowned...but rumors swirled that he was actually killed and eaten by natives. In search of the truth, avid traveler and author Carl Hoffman recently retraced Michael’s path, immersing himself in the world of former headhunters and cannibals to solve this historical whodunit. -- Description by Dawn Towery
