English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river tribe in the Territory of New Guinea. He is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter with the controversial Nell Stone and her Australian husband, Fen, pulls him back from the brink. When Bankson finds them a new tribe nearby, the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an intellectual and romantic firestorm among the three of them that burns out of anyone’s control.
