This book is not written by a Papua New Guinean, but it certainly is a very PNG book. Missionary Neville Bartle (like many missionaries to PNG) went to school
when he arrived in the country many years ago. This schooling was not in a
classroom with teachers and assignments; it was in villages, in bush houses,
listening to late night stories around the fire. It was on long walks, canoe
rides, etc. as he got to know hundreds of people and learned of their lives and
stories. He learned many of these things from PNG people, but the truths are
not local, they are worldwide.
