Summary
"Over fifteen years and many expeditions, Fritz Trupp and Robert Schmid have documented the customs and cultures of the forgotten tribes of Asia, from the Bedouins of southern Arabia to the nomadic Tsaatan of the Russian tundra, from isolated tribal groups in the Indian rainforests to the little-known ethnic peoples of south China. Lives lived in harmony with nature enable them to survive even in the most isolated regions, and to withstand both the increasing pressures of encroaching civilization and the destruction of their natural environment." "Striking full-color photographs illustrate the variety of clothing, jewelry, body painting and other forms of personal adornment of the peoples of tribal Asia. In addition, explanations of rituals, ceremonies and festivals, many of which are rarely seen by outsiders, offer a valuable insight into these ancient but adaptable peoples, providing precious evidence of unique and often endangered ways of life that still endure in an ever-more inhospitable world."--Jacket
