About this book

Anthropologist Albert Buell Lewis spent four arduous years travelling through the former colonies of Melanesia as an ethnological researcher for Chicago's Field Museum. The field diaries that he maintained during this period reveal the fascinating story of how Lewis overcame extraordinary difficulties to assemble the remarkable collection of artifacts now preserved in the museum.
