When Andrew Bankson meets fellow anthropologists Nell Stone and her husband Fen in New Guinea, they have just emerged from a treacherous experience studying the Mumbanyo and are looking for an alternative mission of discovery. He offers to deliver them to a new, unstudied tribe a bit further up the river, all the while endlessly fascinated and captivated by the couple -- Nell in particular. Based loosely on events and people in the life of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, Euphoria is a love triangle simultaneously offering readers a tantalizing peek into the field of anthropology in the early- to mid-1900s -- even better enjoyed if you have ever wanted to be an anthropologist yourself. -- Julia S., Eden Prairie Library
