The true story behind the award-winning PBS television series Ring of Fire charts the Blair brothers' 10-year sojourn through the world's largest and least-known archipelago - the islands of Indonesia. Amid impenetrable rain forests, erupting volcanoes and startling natural beauty, the brothers have captured on film and in words one of the most captivating and intriguing explorations ever made.

Their odyssey began in 1972 with a 2,500-mile voyage through the fabled Spice Islands, in search of the Greater Bird of Paradise. A decade of further exploration followed, during which the authors lived among the Asmat cannibals of Papua and the healers of Bali, and encountered man-eating dragons in Komodo and the elusive 'dream wanderers' of Borneo. With extraordinary courage, humour and passion for the unknown, the Blairs draw us into a magical land where ancient myths still flourish.
