I think this book is also another sign post for our times. Human evolution is well underway and in India, a place with so much diversity and crowding, this book provides a very educational glance at some of the problems facing India in relation to people groups, resource use & land management and the survival and thriving of people groups.
Again, a very informative look from one of my favorite (female) authors!
Clearly the time of tribal people all over the world has come to an end. We do not have the space or time to accomodate them plus there are too many people in the world currently and the poorest least organized will be the first to go. This point she really brings home strongly. Over populated India is a microcosim of the rest of the world. The rest of us are further down the line but still we are all in the same line....
How the author was able to live in these conditions I don't understand!
Would gladly read other books by this author.
