Filmmakers Lorne and Laurence Blair began their fascinating odyssey in 1972, with a 2,500-mile voyage through the fabled Spice Islands, in search of the Greater Bird of Paradise. A decade of further exploration followed, during which the authors lived among the Asmat cannibals of Papua and the healers of Bali, and encountered man-eating dragons in Komodo and the elusive 'dream wanderers' of Borneo. With extraordinary courage, humour and passion for the unknown, the Blairs draw us into a magical land where ancient myths still flourish. Amid impenetrable rain forests, erupting volcanoes and startling natural beauty, the brothers have captured on film and in words the story of one of the most captivating and intriguing explorations ever made. The book remains one of the classics of travel writing on the Indonesian archipelago.
