It was the eerie quietness and stillness that woke me just before dawn. At first I wasn't sure where I was. Oh yes I was in a jungle camp in Papua New Guinea. I was privileged to participate in an administration patrol, sent to investigate some murders and cannibalism in a newly opened area. But why was it so quiet? No murmurs of conversation from the guards; no general camp noise; no birds singing...We were in danger of attack!

This book follows the adventurous journey of an Australian Doctor through encounters with cannibals and crocodiles, famine in Bangladesh, tidal waves, floods, mountains, wilderness and Australian deserts. Join Dr Malcolm Dunjey as he works with Afghan refugees in the wild North West Frontier Province; visits Pakistan desert communities and encounters armed Yemen tribesmen. His missionary experiences have taken him to all corners of the globe, and as he shares his journey the author explores the nature of mission and its often controversial role in the development of various cultures around the world.
