Book Description :

The Forest People -- Colin M. Turnbull's best-selling, classic work -- describes the author's experiences while living with the BaMbuti Pygmies, not as a clinical observer, but as their friend learning their customs and sharing their daily life. Turnbull conveys the lives and feelings of the BaMbuti whose existence centers on their intense love for their forest world, which, in return for their affection and trust, provides their every need. We witness their hunting parties and nomadic camps; their love affairs and ancient ceremonies -- the molimo, in which they praise the forest as provider, protector, and deity; the elima, in which the young girls come of age; and the nkumbi circumcision rites, in which the villagers of the surrounding non-Pygmy tribes attempt to impose their culture on the Pygmies, whose forest home they dare not enter. The Forest People eloquently shows us a people who have found in the forest something that makes their life more than just living -- a life that, with all its hardships and problems and tragedies, is a wonderful thing of happiness and joy.

Book Description :

The Forest People is an astonishingly intimate and life-enhancing account of a hunter-gatherer tribe living in harmony with nature -- and an all-time classic of anthropology. For three years, Colin Turnbull lived with an isolated group of Pygmies deep in the forest of the African Congo, experiencing their daily life first-hand. He attended their hunting parties and initiation ceremonies, witnessed their music and their rituals, observed their quarrels and love affairs. He documented them as an anthropologist but was accepted among them as a friend. A ground-breaking work in its time, The Forest People made him one of the most famous intellectuals of the 1960s and 1970s. It remains a transporting account of an earthly paradise and of a legendary and fascinating people. With a new foreword by Horatio Clare.

Book Description :

Development interventions often generate contradictions around questions of who benefits from development and which communities are targeted for intervention. This book examines how the Baka, who live in Eastern Cameroon, assert forms of belonging in order to participate in development interventions, and how community life is shaped and reshaped through these interventions. Often referred to as ‘forest people’, the Baka have witnessed many recent development interventions that include competing and contradictory policies such as ‘civilize’, assimilate and integrate the Baka into ‘full citizenship’, conserve the forest and wildlife resources, and preserve indigenous cultures at the verge of extinction.

Is she a monster or a savior? Sixteen-year-old Camryn Painter struggles with more than the usual teenage identity issues. As a human chameleon, emotions trigger a transformation into the visage of whomever she sees. But when her foster parents die in a crash and she’s taken captive by so-called scientists, she’s not sure if she’s human or just a freak of nature. Desperate to control her abilities and escape, Camryn emerges from her prison and into a dangerous magical forest. Surrounded by dragons, faeries, and other extraordinary creatures hungry for her power, some in the forest claim she’s their prophesied savior. Unfortunately for her, that declaration triggers a supernatural civil war. Can Camryn unite the fractured forest people, or will her powers erase more than her own identity? Chameleon: The Choosing Camryn Painter has enough identity issues without discovering a deadly new magic coursing through her veins. Though her chameleon-like abilities herald her as the forest people’s savior, she’s terrified by the growing dark power within her. And it only gets worse when she realizes that to control this new magic she’ll have to bond with a deadly Thunder Dragon. As Camryn embarks on her dangerous quest, she discovers that the same human tyrants who experimented on her are behind multiple grisly murders as well. To fulfill her destiny, she may just have to infiltrate her former prison. Can Camryn master her new abilities to stave off more death, or will power-hungry humans destroy her magical home for good? Chameleon: The Summoning She turned a man to ashes. He scattered himself across time and multiple dimensions. Can she recreate him in time to save his life and prove she is the chosen one? Surviving the ultimate transformation and the Agnoses predators, Camryn now faces the rise of a new Mazikeen Queen who thinks nothing of calling the darkness for her own needs. With the Forest People on the brink of war, she retreats to the solitude of the Cloud Forests. To grieve. To heal. To accept she is the Chameleon of prophecy. But the ancient world proves to be anything but quiet and she is far from alone. Guided by the First Forest People, who are now elemental spirits, Camryn must master the powers of air, earth, water and fire. Only then can she enlist her thunder dragon, control time itself, and save Dagger from the void. Even then, her quest is far from over. With the realms of Forest and Human pitted against each other, one world teeters on extinction while the other tips toward eternal darkness. Only Camryn seeks a balanced resolution, and with it an impossible choice requiring her to make the greatest sacrifice of all. If you like incredible worlds filled with unique creatures, intriguing twists and turns, and heartfelt coming-of-age stories, then you’ll love Maggie Lynch’s enthralling trilogy.

Book Description :

This book aims at both academics and professionals in the field of forest-people interfaces. It takes the reader on a journey through four major themes that have emerged since the initiation of 'social forestry' in the 1970s: non-timber forest products and agroforestry; community-based natural resource management; biocultural diversity; and forest governance. In so doing, the books offers a comprehensive and current review on social issues related to forests that other, more specialized publications, lack. It is also theory-rich, offering both mainstream and critical perspectives, and presents up-to-date empirical materials. Reviewing these four major research themes, the main conclusion of the book is that naïve optimism associated with forest-people interfaces should be tempered. The chapters show that economic development, political empowerment and environmental aims are not easily integrated. Hence local landscapes and communities are not as 'makeable' as is often assumed. Events that take place on other scales might intervene; local communities might not implement policies locally; and governance practices might empower governments more than communities. This all shows that we should go beyond community-based ideas and ideals, and look at practices on the ground.

Book Description :

The People of the Forest highlight the plight of the orangutan deep in the rainforests of Sabah, and other parts of Malaysia. The orangutan is the largest tree-living mammal in the world. They are facing extinction due to excessive clearance and destruction of big tracts of forests for commercial logging, legal or otherwise, plus, their own low reproductive rate which makes orangutan population excessively vulnerable to mortality. Their population just takes a long time to recover from a decline. It takes about 4 years of weaning before the young orangutan becomes independent from their mother after which she will be ready to give birth to a second young. This musical moves around a baby orangutan which is named Wira or hero. Wira grows up to be a mischievous individual which never takes no for an answer, so we will follow his adventures in the rainforest with his friends, the proboscis monkey, the pygmy elephant, the mouse-deer, the Sumatran rhino, the hornbill, the clouded leopard, the Malayan tiger, the banteng, the sun bear and the tapir, all endangered species. Wiras adventures will lead him to rescue an infant female orang utan in captivity of illegal loggers in the forest. There are 13 songs in the musical. The live orchestra accompanying the play should use bamboo flutes, bamboo wind chimes, ziters, sampoton, thus capturing the rhythm of the rainforest. Roselina Khir Johari
