Excerpts 
1988
[During a lecture at Berkeley, CA] The Malagasy people are the prototype of what the human race should be.
page 181
1997
A large selection of maps (and also old photo prints) can be bought at the Institut National de Géodésie et Cartographie (its long Malagasy name is shortened to FTM), Lalana Dama-Ntsoha, Ambanidia (tel: 229-35). Hours 8.30 to 12.00, 14.00 to 18.00. They do a series of 12 maps, scale 1:500,000 covering each region of Madagascar. These are most inviting, but sadly no longer completely accurate, especially in their concept of a village, which may turn out to be one hut which fell down a generation ago. There are also excellent maps of Nosy Be and Sainte Marie. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The more popular maps can be bought in bookshops.

Excerpts 
page 150
Après la forêt, le sol s'abaisse subitement d'une centaine de mètres; en même temps commence une grande plaine dominée à sept ou huit heures de marche par une longue chaîne de montagnes, qui paraît inaccessible comme un roc. Cette plaine est celle du Mangour, rivière assez large aux eaux peu profondes, mais que les voyageurs ne peuvent pourtant traverser à gué.
page 255
quant aux ouvriers, ils vont grossir dans l'ouest ces bandes de fahavales, qui sont peut-être moins dangereuses pour la prospérité de l'île que les pillards officiels qui constituent le gouvernement
