From the rear cover, 'In 1968 the Mountain Ok people of the Papua New Guinea Star Mounts, more commonly referred to as Min, experienced their first exposure to the modern world and the developmental potential it was about to unleash. A major gold and copper deposit was discovered on one of their most sacred geographic landmarks, Mount Fubilan. The younger Min saw this as their opportunity to catch up with the 20th century. Traditional cultures are vulnerable to global influences and change, but the Min have managed to keep their traditions alive and have adapted well to a harsh environment. Their culture and heritage is special and they take great pride in it. This book captures images of a living past, as portrayed in the present for the future, after a decade of rapid development and a changing social structure.' Note: the book weighs 1.9 kilos.
