THE LAST ISLAND Discovery, Defiance, and the Most Elusive Tribe on Earth

by | Read by Will Tulin

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Adam Goodheart shares his experiences visiting "the most isolated people in the world" on North Sentinel, in the Andaman Islands in India's Bay of Bengal. In this audiobook he shares accounts of their history. Will Tulin calmly narrates Goodheart's first visit, leaving room for amazement at flying fish and dolphins. Tulin reflects Goodheart's lament over the plastic trash that washes up on shore. Sarcasm creeps in when he lists names such as "Friday" that were given to Sentinelese islanders over the years. He brings clarity to a viceroy's rejection of misconceptions about the islanders. There's a travel magazine's excitement at doing an article on the island and drama in the story of a missionary's death. All make this an obscure but fascinating listen.
