From the Back Cover:

TRAVEL / MYTH AND MYSTERIES

"Sets sails and sights for lands as unfamiliar and spectacular as anything dreamed up for a Steven Speilberg movie. Thoroughly fascinating nearly every harrowing step of the way."
Washington Post

"Incomparable adventure teeming with thrills, chills, mystery and the bizarre."
Los Angeles Times

The true story behind the internationally award-winning PBS television series, Ring of Fire charts the Blair brothers' 10-year journey through the world's largest and least-known archipelago--the islands of Indonesia. Amid seemingly impenetrable rain forests, erupting volcanoes, and unimaginable natural beauty, the brothers hoped to capture on film and in words the customs, beliefs, and wisdon of the islands' inhabitants.

Their odyssey began with a 2,500-mile voyage through the Spice islands, guided by the notorious Bugi pirates, in search of the Greater Bird of Paradise. An entire decade of exploration followed, during which the authors lived among the Asmat cannibal tribe of West New Guinea and the sages and healers of Bali; encountered man-eating dragons of Komodo, and the elusive "dream-wanderers" of Borneo; and learned the legends of starship ancestors in the Clelebes highlands. With extraordinary courage, humor, and passion for the unknown, they draw us into their extraordinary journey to a magical land where ancient myths still flourish.

LAWRENCE BLAIR is also the author of Rythms of Vision (Destiny Books). He has appeared on television and radio on both sides of the Atlantic and has lectured in psycho-anthropology at University of California. LORNE BLAIR worked for the BBC until 1971, when he began his work as an independent filmmaker. In addition to Ring of Fire, his films appearing on international television include the prizewinning Lempad of Bali. Lavishly illustrated with more than one hundred of Lorne's photographs, Ring of Fire tells the story of one of the most captivating and intriguing journeys ever made. It will stand as an enduring record of a vanishing world.
