Forced from the sky due to engine trouble, Race, Hadji, Jonny and Bandit crash land and discover a Brazilian pygmy staked out for death. They save him from becoming panther food but, for their interference, are taken prisoner by the pygmy tribe. At camp, Hadji uses his levitation trick to effect an escape, but Jonny's stumble over his own feet spoils it. As they're tied to stakes for the night, their grateful pygmy friend returns to stealthily set them free, but a spear, accidentally knocked into the camp fire, awakens the chief with a hotfoot. Angry and outraged, the pygmy chief hunts down the Quest party in retaliation. Now it's all Race, the boys and Bandit can do to stay alive, making their final stand on a hilltop against a tribe of angry savages. Written by statmanjeff
