Zahir! The one with the evil-eye.
The novella, Zahir, by Gregory Saunders is an intense, quick read I could well imagine being made into a movie. Candace Morehouse, author of Golden Enchantment
Deep in the Amazon there resides a tribe never before encountered by modern man and only a rumor to the native Yanomamo. The Zallu! In the heart of the forest they live in harmony with nature, expending their lives in the service of the Mother. Small in stature and meek of temperament, they are true gathers with no weapons and no need to kill. Yet now the Mother is threatened. The tall ones have come with their mechanical demons that eat the trees and scar the land.
The Zallu have only one thing to give in the Mother's defense; their lives. The Zallu are the keepers and the protectors! They hide a great secret. They have knowledge of creatures known as the Zahir. Monsters that have only one desire. One purpose; To kill.
Deep in the jungle a survey crew is lost and it’s up to Lou Anderson and his small team of searchers to find them. But what they discover instead is an unknown tribe that could make them rich, and even though something is not quite right about the Zallu, greed overcomes their caution. It may just prove to be a fatal mistake as the Mother calls forth her defenders. Deep in the Amazon, survival is not an option.
