About the Author

TED SABINE is a retired English and creative writing teacher who taught for twelve years at Cairo American College in Egypt and has traveled the world extensively with his wife, Margaret (Mogie). The author has prospected for diamonds in Guyana, collected numerous species of insects from Africa, South America, New Guinea, and Borneo, and became known as the "Bug Man" by students during his time in Cairo for his ardent storytelling abilities. Still, his initial excursions were along the Pan American Highway in Ecuador, ending up in the province of El Oriente where he received his inspiration for Tsantsa. Mr. Sabine's science fiction novel, The Soulsucker, was published in 1976. Today, his hobbies include fly fishing, travel photography, weight training, and insect collecting.

Format: Paperback
Traveling the world can provide much great inspiration. "Tsantsa" is the story of Moises and his inner conflict dealing with his culture's traditions and a western priest who wants him to follow Christianity - and end his people's practice of shrinking heads. A novel of culture clash with engaging characters, "Tsantsa" is a piece of highly recommended writing for those looking for a literary-quality story.

Format: Paperback
This book is written in a unique style, with a backdrop of clashing cultures and religions in a thought provoking, intriguing manner. When I hit the last part of the book, I couldn't quit until I finished it. The characters are vividly and sympathetically drawn. It was quite a jungle ride. And, now I want to see a blue Morpho butterfly.

Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating tale of the clash of cultures in the wilds of Ecuador. The descriptions of the jungle are vivid - you are immersed into its sights and sounds. The rigidness of the priest and the 'old one' are the real heart of the story. You will be thinking about it long after you put the book down.

This is the type of book that you don't want to put down while you are reading it and you think about long after you have finished it. The characters and the setting are described so vividly that you feel as if you are witnessing the story firsthand. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a wonderfully written story that transports you to another time and place.
