Savage Harvest

A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art



“…an expertly told tale that is begging for a film adaptation…. While the truth of Rockefeller’s disappearance may never be known, Hoffman deserves much credit for this riveting, multilayered tale.”

–Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review

“…a hypnotic journey into otherness, a wild detective story amid cannibals and headhunters. But it’s also … an exploration into secrecy and the unknowable yearnings of the heart. A thrilling, one-of-a-kind tale –I couldn’t stop reading.”

–Andrew McCarthy, The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down
