An engrossing investigation into the 1961 disappearance of Michael Rockefeller, NY Governor Nelson Rockefeller’s youngest son, wo went missing in New Guinea while on a quest to purchase native artifacts.

Both gripping and thoughtful, Savage Harvest explores its subject in both personal and universal terms much like Into the Wild does.
