The Last Men: Journey Among the Tribes of New Guinea by Iago Corazzo and Greta Roba – Hands down the best book ever on Papua New Guinea.

Chalmers wrote three other books about his experience as a missionary in New Guinea, 'Adventures in New Guinea', 'Pioneering in New Guinea', and 'Pioneer Life and Work in New Guinea '.
