Cannibal-Land By Martin Johnson


Cannibal-Land    1922
Martin and Osa Johnson, famous writer and explorers, penetrated to the unknown parts of the New Hebrides in search of veritable cannibals. Their search was successful and on several occasions they both had very narrow escapes from nourishing the objects of their quest, These almost unknown tribes of the Melanesian Islands form one of the last outposts of the Stone Age. It is not only a strange corner of the earth that Martin Johnson has pictured, but one of the typical stages of culture, The barbarity of the customs and tabus, the living burial of the aged, the ghoulish feasts, gain a gripping realism through Martin Johnson's brilliant photographs and stirring narrative. The book is written in an easy open-air style with adventure following adventure. Please call 620-431-2730 or email for pricing and availability.
