Pallamary frequently visits the mountains, deserts and jungles of North and South America pursuing his studies of shamanism. His historical novel of first contact between shamans and Jesuits in 18th century South America, titled, Land Without Evil, was published by Charles Publishing, and received rave reviews along with a San Diego Book Award. It was also adapted into a full-length stage and sky show, co-written by Agent Red with Matt Pallamary, directed by Agent Red, and performed by Sky Candy, an Austin Texas aerial group. The making of the show was the subject of a PBS series, Arts in Context episode which garnered an EMMY nomination. Land Without Evil is being translated into Spanish.
