Madagascar: The Eighth Continent: Life, Death and Discovery in a Lost World

Peter Tyson

Madagascar is a land where lizards scream and monkey-like lemurs sing songs of inexpressible beauty. Known as the Great Red Island, it is a place where Fossa and tenrecs, vangas and Aye Ayes thrive in a true 'Lost World' alongside bizarre plants like the Octopus Tree and the Three-Cornered Palm. And where the ancestors of the Malagasy, as the island's 18 tribes are collectively known, come alive in rollicking ceremonies known as "turning the bones." This natural and cultural history of Madagascar is an exploration of what makes the island so extraordinary. It is the only book that combines cutting-edge science and conservation with adventure travel and historical narrative. Perfect for those about to travel to Madagascar for the first time or just want to learn more, much of the historical material will be new to those familiar with Madagascar, even researchers who have worked there for years. 440 pages.
