s thought by Belgian officials as a guarantee that he’ll be eaten, allowing the army to move in and destroy this last untouchable cannibal tribe. Simon is another prisoner anxious for some bloodletting, but he is sent to the northern territories of the Congo. He is repulsed by the "half-humans" he meets, people barely existing between cultures as an effect of early conversion and forced labor in the rubber plantations. His goal is to make them happy to become a part of the growing world trade, until he meets Agatha, an American journalist in disguise who has forced her way into interior to take those scathing photos of conquest. Simon becomes a man torn between desires. Filled with historical realities of the brutal takeover of culture, Dancing with Cannibals gives readers a taste of the realities of cannibalism and forced conversion. Jean soon learns the real reason for the desired takeover of this tribe--their holy mountain sparkles with the souls of their ancestors. Jean and Simon met on the boat early in the book and became friends, but are torn apart by opposing desires, and are destined to meet again where their friendship is tested. And Agatha, too, comes to find that her youthful ideology wasn't enough in the face of Simon's desires.
