I've been searching for The Sky Travelers and the War Book Shop unfortunately could help BUT they have go to the trouble of listing all their PNG related books.

Maybe something you've been looking for.

So here it is in two PDF files.

John, the book is superb. As you found out, it's hard to get, outside a university library, and bloody expensive if you can find one. My wife doesn't earn enough for me to buy a copy.

Tony, a good 1st edition copy did not sell on ebay for $125. Auction closed today. A great opportunity to purchase. Also, noticed PNG 1975 Independence medals are now being classified as "scarce". UK asking price 160 pounds plus. Very hard to find. Cheers

The Sky Travellers.
Available from Melbourne University Press website for A$39.99 + postage in paperback form.
For anyone who has lived & worked in PNG this fascinating story is well worth obtaining.

Try any library,they will get you most anything for free.I requested Middle Kingdom from Gympie library and they bought it! The librarian told me it was the only request received in history category last five years.For a dollar I purchased ,William Hughes by Carl Bridge 2010.
It appears no compensation was paid for German property in New Guinea as it was seized as reparations.Though the various Masters of Expropriation could grant title,possibly to missions in continuance.

Thanks to Arthur Smedley's generous research and advice, I bought a first edition hardback in perfect condition for US$35 from Grant's bookshop in Black Rock (Melbourne). They have one left at US$30 (first reprint; hardback).
