Excerpt from Two Years Among New Guinea Cannibals: A Naturalist's Sojourn Among the Aborigines of Unexplored New Guinea
Tms record of two years' scientific work in the only country of the globe that has still escaped exploration purposely avoids the dry detail of a Natural History Report, such as might properly be submitted to alearned society, and is intended rather to set forth to the general reader the vicissitudes of the traveller's daily life in unknown New Guinea, or Papua as I prefer to call it. Every hour brought a new interest, and it was with the intention of trying to communicate some impression of that wonderful land in which we sojourned, that the present account 'has been under taken. If the result is disappointing to the reader, the fault must lie with the writer and not with Papua.
