Peter Tyson, multi-team member and former Earthwatch Institute staff member, may be speaking in a town near you! Hear the tales from his fascinating new book "The Eighth Continent: Life, Death and Discovery in the Lost World of Madagascar", which includes commentary on Carnivores of Madagascar, and Madagascar Lemurs.
Part scientific exploration, part adventure saga, part cultural and historical narrative, The Eighth Continent follows Peter's four-year journey across Madagascar, from the rainforests of Nosy Be in the northwest to the mountainous peninsula at Fort Dauphin in the southeast; from the heart of vanilla country on the northeast coast to the scorching spiny desert of the southwest. Along the way, he joins four scientists - a herpetologist, a paleoecologist, an archeologist, and a primatologist - who are exploring "the naturalists' promised land" and trying to solve some of the foremost mysteries on an island rife with them.
