About this book

Throwim Way Leg (which means, in New Guinea pidgin, to go on a journey) describes the hilarious and terrifying adventures of an Australian field biologist in New Guinea, one of the last frontiers left on Earth: giant rats, tree-kangaroos, singing dogs, huge spiders. And the mountain peoples are hardly less extraordinary. Redmond O'Hanlon calls Flannery, author of prize-winning The Future Eaters, "One of the world's greatest zoologists [...] who's probably discovered more new species than Darwin."

Re-issue of the book originally published in 1998.
