His retelling is as fresh as if it happened yesterday and there is never a dull moment. From hair raising experiments with stump blasting to being caught in the arrow-fire of a tribal battle. He witnesses a young men's initiation ritual that no non-natives have ever seen, visits cannibals and head-hunters in their isolated villages and experiences the mysterious power of native superstition. Ross's life is never dull. This book includes some 60 coloured photographs from his vast collection which richly illustrate his writing.

Price: $34

It has to happen and could ultimately join with the North but who knows? Should happen sooner rather than later.
