Carl Hoffman is a writer who believes in plunging in.  He is the author of “Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism and Michael Rockefeller's Tragic Quest for Primitive Art,” which debuted on the New York Times bestseller list in April 2014.

To untangle what happened to the son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller, who vanished in 1961, he learned Bahasa Indonesian and lived in a remote village amidst 10,000 square miles of road-less swamp with a tribe of former headhunters and cannibals on the southwest coast of New Guinea. For his previous book, “The Lunatic Express,” which was named one of the ten best books of 2010 by the Wall Street Journal, he traveled 50,000 miles around the world on its most dangerous conveyances, including by bus across Afghanistan and through the Gobi desert on a 20-ton propane truck.

He is a contributing editor at National Geographic Traveler, a former contributing editor at Wired, and has traveled on assignment to more than 70 countries.  He is a native of Washington, D.C. and the father of three.
