In 1992 the author left her inner city life in Sydney to take up a volunteer position working with and for women in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. She landed in the intersection of very old cultures with the very latest in western religion, mining and development philosophies. The opposition of the men in power, the extreme otherness of the culture and the isolation were the difficulties; the beauty and fascination of the place and new friendships found there were the joys. This new edition includes an Afterword about the writing and reception of the book, which was first published in 1992.
