    Savage Harvest A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art by Carl Hoffman is an interesting book I enjoyed the parts about Rockefeller but there is a lot that is not about him and just about other things and seems to ramble Parts of that was interesting but some was boring I thought the very opening about how Michael might have died was a bit disrespectful because no one knows how he died and to speculate in such a gruesome detail was unneces Savage Harvest A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art by Carl Hoffman is an interesting book I enjoyed the parts about Rockefeller but there is a lot that is not about him and just about other things and seems to ramble Parts of that w...
