The Sea of Zanj has been a place of myth and mystery since time immemorial, and its islands have captured countless imaginations. Mauritius, Reunion and Rodrigues, the Seychelles and Madagascar - T.V. Bulpin recounts their stories and histories; stories of strange animals and exotic places, of pirates and runaway slaves, of forgotten kingdoms and deadly welcomes. The author has left an invaluable account of an enchanting and often brutal world far removed from the air-conditioned resorts and package tours so familiar to tourists today. Thomas Victor Bulpin (1918-1999) was a well-known and very prolific travel writer - he wrote 29 books and thousands of pamphlets and features on southern Africa for magazines and newspapers. An inveterate traveller, he was the author of classics such as The Ivory Trail, Lost Trails on the Lowveld and the Illustrated Guide to Southern Africa.
