Publisher’s Description: 

The Kadars are a small indigenous community in south India. Even though they no longer live deep in the forest, they still walk its paths every day. For them, walking is a way of knowing, not just a way of getting from place to place.

This is the story of a Kadar elder who takes a young urban visitor through the tangled woods that make up his ancient home. The book captures an urban nature lovers experience of learning from a forest-dweller and is beautifully illustrated to bring alive the dark richness of an lndian tropical forest.
