Editorial Reviews

Anthropologist Wade Davis is one of the world's great story tellers, with personal adventures to match. An Explorer-in-Residence at National Geographic, he specializes in hanging out with traditional peoples and exploring their religious practices.

He first came to public notice with his discovery of the reality of zombies in Haitian voodoo and the substance used to poison them -- chronicled in his 1985 book, The "Serpent and the Rainbow." He is the author of 13 books, including "One River" and "Shadows in the Sun," and has hosted, written, and starred in numerous television specials, including "Earthguide," "Light at the Edge of the World," "Spirit of the Mask," and "Forests Forever." This talk is based on the prestigious Massey Lectures that Davis gave in Canada in 2009.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Let me start by saying that i REALLY love Wade Davis. I have all his books and spent way too much time watching him on youtube. This dvd is simply him speaking on a podium with occasional images projected behind. If you are familiar with his material, you will know he can be a bit repetitive. This series of lectures does not cover much new ground, and visually it is a flop. If you are not familiar with his books or films THEN STOP WASTING YOUR LIFE AND GO AND READ the Wayfinders. As far as his films go i really recommend the dvd of the same title or either of the two he has done for national geographic. The biographical dvd was also lovely. This one is only for hardcore fanatics.

This DVD is a rare event, when a lecture about a five-star book is better than the book itself. Wade gives a great presentation in front of a hip San Francisco audience. Be sure not to miss the question and answer session afterward.

As usual, Wade Davis shares his intimate and expansive knowledge regarding different people/cultures throughout the world in an engaging and inspiring way.
