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.

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