Among the Cannibals
Available in Stock
Travel writer Paul Raffaele has journeyed to remote corners of the earth in search of native peoples and sects who practised or are still practising 'this deep and terrible perversity of human nature': cannibalism. This account of his adventures records encounters with man-eaters including the Korowai tribe in New Guinea; holy men of a Hindu sect in Benares; and the warriors of Tonga, who until recently ate their slain enemies. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
