Forest of the Pygmies

by Isabel Allende
£7.99   paperback  Harper Perennial (2005)

Forest of the Pygmies by Isabel Allende From one of the world's best loved storytellers, the trilogy that began with City of the Beasts comes to a thrilling climax.
 
Alexander Cold knows all too well his grandmother Kate is never far from an adventure. When National Geographic commissions her to write an article about the first elephant-led safaris in Africa, they head - with Nadia Santos and the magazine's photography crew - to the blazing, red plains of Kenya. Days into the tour, a Catholic missionary approaches the camp in search of his companions who have mysteriously disappeared. Kate, Alexander, Nadia, and their team, agreeing to aid the rescue, enlists the help of a local pilot to lead them to the swampy forests of Ngoube.
 
There they discover a clan of Pygmies who unveil a harsh and surprising world of corruption, slavery, and poaching. Alexander and Nadia, entrusting the magical strengths of Jaguar and Eagle, their totemic animal spirits, launch a spectacular and precarious struggle to restore freedom and return leadership to its rightful hands.
 
The final instalment of Isabel Allende's celebrated trilogy soars with radiant settings, spirits, beings -- and the transformation of an extraordinary friendship.
