Ring of Fire – Exploring the Last Remote Places of the World –

Lawrence Blair with Lorne Blair

“Here is the real-life story of two brothers who left civilization behind to follow in the footsteps of the world’s greatest explorers and adventurers. They penetrated the last uncharted region of our planet,  a land of living cannibals and kings, pirates and dragons, mystics and magicians … a land of waking dreams.

In 1973, Lawrence and Lorne Blair traveled through the most remote, exotic and dangerous places on earth: the islands of Indonesia – nearly 14.000 of them, scattered over one million square miles of ocean. Amid lush tropical forests and unimaginable natural beauty, the brothers hoped to capture on film and in words the ways, beliefs and wisdom of the primitive people who lived there.

Their incredible odyssey began with a 2.500-mile voyage, guided by the notorious Bugi pirates, through the Spice Islands in search of the Greater Bird of Paradise. An entire decade of exploration followed, during which the brothers dwelt naked among the Asmat cannibal tribe of West New Guinea: sought spiritual mysteries in the paradise of Bali: encountered man-eating Komodo dragons; mingled with the mystical Toraja tribe who believe their ancestors descended from the sky in starships; and found the elusive Panan Dyaks, the ‘dream-wandering’ forest tribe of Borneo, who had been thought no longer to exist.

Lavishly illustrated with more than one hundred photographs, Ring of Fire tells the story of one of the most captivating and intriguing journeys ever made. It will stand as an enduring record of a vanishing world inhabited by the most exotic animals and primitive peoples on earth.”
