(Ring of Fire series, Part 4)
For 800 miles, through untamed and uncharted rainforest, the Blairs seek the last of the Punan Dyaks, the free-roving masters of the interior, believed to no longer exist. Eventually, they find them and are initiated into the spiritual mysteries of the "dream wanderers." They are tattooed with the symbol of Aping--"the Tree of All Life." Their shaman explains to them that they will now bear it as a reminder that all life forms are part of a single tree.
