Summary Long ago, earth was dominated by supernatural spirits living in the forest. Man however, lived in perfect harmony with them, thanks to a sacred alliance he concluded with the animals. This common destiny protected man from these Spirits. Out of this alliance came incredible legends. Handed down from generation to generation, these Legends have always been considered to be ancient history. Today however, throughout the world, exist ethnic minorities whose daily lives continue to bear witness to contemporary myths : these legends are their faith, and the animals, their gods. Thus, they are perpetuating the sacred alliance between man and the animals of the wild. By recounting extraordinary true stories, Lands of legends has sought out these people, who continue to share incredible adventures with animals, hoping to receive the Spirit's protection. From the Indonesian horsemen of Sumba Island to the wild elephant tamers of the Vietnamese forest, this collection reveals the most wondrous of beliefs which unite man and animal in the spectacular, thousand-year old fulfilment of a magical destiny.
