View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Nearly a century ago in the South Pacific, cannibalistic pygmies lived in the rugged heart of Vanuatu s largest island, Espiritu Santo. They were thought to be extinct, but in 1995, Rick discovered they still existed. He was initiated into their tribe, and became an integral part of a unique culture that hates the white man, eats human flesh, and performs child sacrifice and other bizarre rituals. These remote highlanders live in a timeless and mystical world, and are so naturally violent no one else had ever documented their fascinating culture.

About the Author:

Rick Williamson, 46, New Zealander photojournalist and explorer, lives with primitive tribes in the South Pacific. His articles and photos have been published worldwide.


Physically I was ready for whatever I had to face, but nothing could prepare me for the severe mental shock I was about to suffer when I became an intimate part of rituals that involve human sacrifice. Those experiences could have poisoned my soul, but I chose to make them enrich my thinking in a positive way. It demanded a lot of personal growth, and at times it wasn t easy. From: Interview with Rick Williamson --Traditionell Bogenschiessen Magazine, Germany
