"Madagascar: A world out of time" captures the wonder of a magical place where evolution took an extraordinary turn. As seen by photographer Frans Lanting, the enchanting lemur, the ferocious aye aye or the primitive baobab tree reveal Madagascar's channing culture and endangered ecosystem.
Madagascar is a naturalists' promised land. It is home to an overwhelming diversity of flora and fauna, including 8'000 species of plants unique to the island, hundreds of indigenous birds and mammals, and two dozen kinds of lemurs constituting an entirely separate branch of primate evolution.

Frans Lanting has done pioneering work in Madagascar, capturing spectacular images of landscapes, people, and animals never documented before. his photographs and accompanying text illuminate a complex web of nature and culture in one of the most exotic places on earth.
Highly infomative essays by Dr. Alison Jolly, the doyenne of Madagascar's natural history, discuss environmental perils and new conservation efforts. Dr. John Mack contributes a thoughful essay on the rich Malagasy culture: Gerald Durell, noted author and head of the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, contrubutes the introduction.
