KIRKUS REVIEW

A bit on the flash side, but entertaining reading, this glib account of a three hundred mile trek across Dutch New Guinea, made for the purpose of taking tribal moving pictures. The author, with her new husband, soon finds that jungle travel is not as she had pictured it. By the hard way she learns not to be a tender-foot; manages to keep her finger in the running of the expedition and gives a personal and often amusing record of the annoyances, irritations, dangers and troubles attendant on getting pictures, with the incidental record of habits, customs and life of the tribes they encounter. Armchair adventure.
