Intrigued by tales of the Vazimba people -- a mysterious tribe of white pygmies according to some accounts; an invisible telepathic people according to others -- Mark travels to the ancient 'Isle of the Moon'. Accompanied by his pack bull Jobi, he treks across Madagascar, crossing the forbidden bandit country of the 'Zone Rouge'. Before Mark comes to the end of his quest, and hears the story of the last of the Vazimba at the feet of an old village headman, he must learn to tell myth from reality in a land that has spawned sacred crocodiles, sorcerer-bandits, blood-guzzling spirit animals and a bizarre socialist pirate commune. Mark Eveleigh exuberantly captures the spirit of Madagascar in this magical modern-day adventure.
