Savage Stan C. Smith

It’s 1868. Samuel Inwood is fulfilling his dream of exploring remote Dutch New Guinea as a naturalist when things go horribly wrong. A savage aboriginal tribe takes him captive, and as Samuel fights to survive, he begins to doubt that he is the civilized man he had thought himself to be. But his personal concerns suddenly become trivial when he realizes the tribe is harboring the greatest discovery in human history, and he finds himself solely responsible for the future of all humanity. This is Samuel Inwood’s story. It depicts events that took place 150 years before those of the novel, Diffusion, but it is an independent, stand-alone story. If you have found this book, the end of the world has already begun. Are you prepared to face what the new world might bring?
