About the Author
SURVIVAL INTERNATIONAL Survival International is the only international organization today that supports tribal peoples worldwide. It was founded in 1969 and is working towards a world in which tribal peoples' diverse ways of life are understood and accepted, oppression of them is not tolerated and they are free to live their own ways of life, on their own land, in peace, freedom and security. Survival International has offices in the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the Netherlands; they plan to open a US office in 2009. JOANNA EEDE writes about the environment and wilderness and explores the interconnnections between humans and nature. Her previous books include Portrait of England (Think Publishing Ltd, 2006) and Liberty and Livelihood: A Portrait of Life in Rural Britain (Travelman, 2003). She contributes articles to national newspapers and magazines on subjects ranging from the wild Przewalski horses of the Mongolian steppe, the migrating whales of the Alboran sea, the Moorish spirit of Andalucia and the sacred sites of indigenous tribes. She has produced two short films on climate change and the renaissance of local food culture in Britain and has collaborated on creative media projects with various environmental organisations.
