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.\nBusa was on the brink of death, and some of the highlanders were adamant that Damate had wreaked havoc on Middle Bush because ... the previous cyclone, a ten-year-old boy died, and the highlandersa#39; Toyota was washed away when a flash flood surged along the Jordan River. ... My presence woulda#39;ve created more unwelcome problems at a time when everyone was busy trying to rebuild their lives.
