Ten Thousand Years in a Lifetime
The book, first published in 1968, describes the author's childhood as a member of a semi-nomadic tribe, with vivid descriptions of rituals and customs. It recounts his first contact with western civilization, his further education, and his political awakening.
The book was reviewed by L. L. Langness in American Anthropologist, Volume 72, Issue 6, where he describes it as "an account well worth reading whether you specialise in New Guinea, the Pacific, or in some other area of the world."
