There, as her family struggled for acceptance among the tightly knit and fiercely loyal community, Sabine spent her time swimming with crocodiles, shooting poisonous spiders with arrows, and chewing on pieces of bat-wing in place of gum.

A #1 bestseller in Europe, CHILD OF THE JUNGLE tells the remarkable story of a childhood and adolescence spent caught between two modes of existence-jungle life and Western "civilization." Sabine Kuegler was five years old when her family-her German linguist-missionary parents and her siblings-moved to the territory of the recently discovered hunter-and-gatherer Fayu tribe of Papua New Guinea. The Fayu tribe is best known for being a Stone Age community untouched by modern times-they live an existence characterized by fear, violence, and atavistic ritual (including cannibalism in some regions)-but Sabine's family saw another side to them as well. Once the Kueglers were accepted by a clan chief, they found themselves becoming a part of a tightly knit and fiercely loyal community, and living the primal existence of the Fayu-one marked by the natural cycles of day and night, malaria and other diseases, and daily encounters with wildlife, from swims with crocodiles to dinners of worms. As the Kueglers changed, so did the Fayu people, learning from Sabine's family that there was a way out of their cycle of violence and that forgiveness can be sweeter than revenge. At the age of 17, Sabine found her life turned upside down when she left for Switzerland to attend boarding school and entered traditional society head-on. CHILD OF THE JUNGLE is the story of a life lived among the Fayu and the author's attempt to reconcile her feelings about "civilization" with those about a life she knew and loved.

This was a remarkable memoir, marked by its simplicity. There weren't any totally out of the box situations or occurrences in this memoir (which can't be helped, but nevertheless still gives it only four stars), but it was still excellent. When it comes down to it, if you are a person of reverential Christian faith, have a reverence for missions, or if you enjoy cultural studies, this book is for you. The religious tones in this book are not great by any means, but still present, as a forewarning. Great memoir, definitely my top 3.

I appreciate learning of new cultures through the life experiences of the writers. This life story was shared with humor, clarity and kept me pondering and thinking of a life immersed in such different cultures. Thank you Sabine for enriching my life.

I would recommend this book to young adults, adults, and anyone interested in anthropology. Unlike adults who go to study other cultures, Sabine actually lived it from ages 7 to 17. I have read criticism that she did not address political abuses by the government, but this is not about that. This is a memoir of a girl growing up in one culture but two cultural models - the Fayu and her German parents.

I loved this book. I went into it semi expecting not to like it as much as I did. I loved every part of it and do not agree with any of the less than stellar comments made about it. We are all entitled to our opinion and I respect those who do not feel this is a 5 star book. With that said.....I loved how the author was truly able to capture the feel of what her life was like with the Fayu. I felt as though I was right there along side her. I loved that the book was written in what sounded like a realistic account of what it would be like to live this life. I think she told her story well and without a doubt I have the utmost respect for this remarkable woman. Because of how she wrote it I could plainly see how difficult it was to fully feel a part of either world. I loved it so much I know I'll re-read it again one day.

I laughed, I cried... I thoroughly enjoyed every page. I did not want the book to end. I would recommend this book to everyone!

An interesting story to tell doesn't insure that the story will be told in an interesting way. Savine Kuegler doesn't help this reader get inside her set of unique experiences. I appreciate her struggles and wish her well, but couldn't really enjoy her memoir.

A child of missionaries accompanies her parents into the remote jungle of Indonesian New Guinea. While not a serious work of ethnography it still provides interesting insights. The story of the girl begins when her parents are already committed to this career and tells us a lot about their lives, the organization of the station, the interactions with the natives, etc. This young woman shows us her perspective of events. A less interesting part is her return to civilization. If you are interested in New Guinea, the book gives you another view of this amazing place. This would also be an interesting read for a young woman for different reasons. This book is not new and came to my attention in a book about the transition from primitive to modern society by Jared Diamond. I thought it worth my time.
this book was recommended by a friend regarding the people of New Guinea, to help understand the culture that these people have and how white Christians have helped to make peace among the tribes of the region, and bring about harmony and acceptance of each other, learning that God is their God as well.
