Descrizione

The final installment of Isabel Allende's celebrated trilogy of the journeys of Jaguar and Eagle soars with radiant settings, spirits, beings, and the transformation of an extraordinary friendship, as Alexander and Nadia embark on mission in Kenya that begins as a search for elephants and ends up exposing a system of injustices.

Alexander Cold knows all too well his grandmother Kate is never far from an adventure. When International Geographic commissions her to write an article about the first elephant-led safaris in Africa, they head—with Nadia Santos and the magazine's photography crew—to the blazing, red plains of Kenya.

Days into the tour, a Catholic missionary approaches their camp in search of his companions who have mysteriously disappeared. Kate, Alexander, Nadia, and their team, agreeing to aid the rescue, enlist the help of a local pilot to lead them to the swampy forests of Ngoubé. There they discover a clan of Pygmies who unveil a harsh and surprising world of corruption, slavery, and poaching.

Alexander and Nadia, entrusting the magical strengths of Jaguar and Eagle, their totemic animal spirits, launch a spectacular and precarious struggle to restore freedom and return leadership to its rightful hands.

    it´s a really good book.You cant stop reading it. it´s written in a way that traps you.

    Though this wasn't the best book in the series it was still pretty good. But like the first book it still took a little time to really get in to it. It is like the other books where Alexander and Nadia are travelling together but this time they go to Africa to search for the Forest of the Pygmies. This is a great ending book to the series.I hope that Isabel Allende will write some more teen books!

    Allende takes us into the heart of Africa in this last installment of her young adult series. Kate Cold, intrepid sestagenarian journalist for international geographic is accompanied once again by her grandson Alex and his young friend Nadia. This journey takes them into the heart of Africa, where the travellers are confronte with a village under the cruel thumb of a mercenary. Alex and Nadia use their strength and courage to unmask the villains and return harmony the area. Although the first book balanced adventure with an exploration of the spiritual lives of the amazon, the last two fell short on both sides. Although the story rolled along quite nicely, I found it a little trying to read about how Alex and Nadia were able to conquer the day simply on the strength of their awakened spirituality.

    Another exciting adventure in the Allende's trilogy! It's a fun read, although I felt it would have been better if it had been a bit longer. This is the last book, and I'm sad to say goodbye to Alexander and Nadia.
