"This remarkable book is the first autobiography, in fact the first important book ever to come out of New Guinea. It tells the story of a man, who in his own lifetime spanned thousands of years of human development. Maori Kiki was born into the stone-age life of a small semi-nomadic tribe, and is now an important public figure, one of the founders of New Guinea's first important political party. Kiki describes the remarkable transition in vivid prose and, looking back at his childhood and youth, recounts the customs and rituals of his tribe with warmth and affection, but without illusion.
