Rascal Rain: a Year in Papua New Guinea

Rascal Rain…is a valuable sociological document on the appalling, continuing mistreatment of women; a graphic look at the beauty and splendour of the country and, amid the savagery, a story of warm and developing relationships with blacks and whites alike and a burgeoning love story for the author. … Baranay was sent to Enga to help in expanding the social, environmental and, particularly, the literacy programmes of the Enga Womens’ Council. … There is much joy in this fast-moving book. … Rascal Rain… is eminently readable and of particular interest to those interested in womens’ movements, New Guinea, native culture and travel. A good read.
