It is written by Michael Stührenberg and illustrated with 12 colour photographs by Pascal Maitre.

Article Summary from Page 25

Trois semaines d'expédition à travers brousse et montagne. Objectif: débusquer un baria. Pour les Malgaches sakalavas, ce taureau sauvage qui vit sur le plateau de Bongolava est l'incarnation d'une certaine perfection. Le chasser est presque une quête mystique. Une course épuisante, émaillée de rencontres inquiétantes... sous la conduite de Michel Tertipis, mi-Sakalava, mi-Blanc.

Article Summary from Page 25 (English Translation)

Three weeks of trekking through bush and over mountain. The objective: to flush out a baria. For the Sakalava Malagasy, this wild bull which lives on the Bongolava Plateau, is the incarnation of a certain perfection. The hunt is an almost mystical search. An exhausting race full of alarming encounters... under the guidance of Michel Tertipis, half-Sakalava, half-white.
