Maverick in Madagascar

Madagascar is an adventurous destination even before attempting to scale the Grand Tsingy. But Mark Eveleigh shares an even grander adventure in his 2001 book, Maverick in Madagascar. Well written, it is a wonderful sideways glimpse into the culture that is keen on courtesies often lacking in the USA.

Like many destinations lacking in modern infrastructure, Madagascar leaves me thinking there is more to the place than meets the eye. Mr. Eveleigh undertook a journey through uncharted territory and despite sore feet, stayed lucid enough to be able to enlighten even armchair travelers of “boots on the ground” in Madagascar.  This literary effort is a wonderful gift to the curious. Thank you.

Also, a fun adventure in Madagascar is found in the 1999 documentary, “Lemurs with John Cleese.”

My first time in Madagascar was awesome because lemurs are kind of funny; they throw fruit at the back of your head when you’re not looking and then point at one another when you turn around.” —Kevin Hearne, Trapped
