Savage Harvest by Carl Hoffman is paired with the permanent exhibit, Spirits and Headhunters.
Savage Harvest is an investigation into the 1961 disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in Dutch New Guinea. Hoffman finally solves this decades-old mystery and illuminates a culture transformed by years of colonial rule, whose people continue to be shaped by ancient customs and lore. By combining history, art, colonialism, adventure, and ethnography, Hoffman gives us a fascinating portrait of the clash between two civilizations. 304 pp.
