History and romance are intertwined in this autobiographical account of the recent history of New Guinea and Australian colonization. Beverly, just 21 when she arrives in New Guinea to live with her new husband, is ill-prepared for what she encounters—spiders, snakes, and the arrogant and strikingly handsome Pole, Stan Rybarz. As Stan falls in love with Beverly, he continues to tackle the jungles of New Guinea to construct roads and bridges. This entertaining account tells of a complex and courageous man revered by the natives he employs, and of a rich and beautiful country struggling to come to terms with the 20th century and its approaching independence. Full of humor and rare insight, this compelling narrative offers a fascinating glimpse into the pioneering aspects of expatriate life in New Guinea.
