Summary In 1971, a band of 26 "Stone Age" rain-forest dwellers was discovered living in total isolation by a Philippine government minister with a dubious background. Or were they Tasaday farmers who had been coerced? In answering that question, Hemley has written a gripping and ultimately tragic tale of innocence found, lost, and found again.
