"Inspired, beautiful, and wholly original. Miles Harvey is an archeologist of forgotten stories, a master of finding astounding characters folded into the crevices of withered documents. In Painter in a Savage Land, he has breathed life into a thrilling and unlikely tale that, in the end, connects us all."
--Robert Kurson, author of Shadow Divers and Crashing Through
"Harvey's volume hits the sweet spot for both adventure buffs and history fans."
