About this book

Part scientific exploration, part adventure saga, part cultural and historical narrative, The Eighth Continent follows Tyson's journeys with four scientific experts as they explore the fourth-largest island in the world.
`Whether meeting a leaf-tailed gecko eye to eye, searching for the extinct giant lemur, discussing the biogeography of animals, or describing conservation issues and local customs, Peter Tyson provides a delightful narrative, the most informative, fascinating and enjoyable book on the natural and cultural history of Madagascar I have read.' George B Schaller, Director for Science, Wildlife Conservation Society
