A Death in the Rainforest: How a Language and a Way of Life Came to an End in Papua New Guinea
A Death in the Rainforest: How a Language and a Way of Life Came to an End in Papua New Guinea. Over the course of three decades, Kulick spent time in Papua New Guinea documenting an isolated language, Tayap. Kulick tells us the story of these people and how they live in a changing world, as he takes us behind the scenes to show what an anthropologist does. Reading this book reminded me why my undergraduate major in anthropology never led to graduate school or to fieldwork.
