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.

This beautiful, informative and timely book 'is what it says on the tin', that is; A Celebration of Tribal Peoples.
Yet it is more than that, it is a warning, a warning that there are throughout the world small groups of indigenous peoples whose way of life, and often their actual lives, are being destroyed in the name of 'progress' which often stems from corruption and and a lust for money. Thus it is also an expose. Yet the book is not at all 'shouty' rather you are pretty much left to come to your own conclusions. (this review is probably more 'shouty' than the actual book itself!)
As best as it has been possible to research, Survival International has for some years been standing up for oppressed peoples rights, they receive support from a lot of celebrities - the usual suspects! - and of course from lots of relative nonentities such as myself.
The actual book is so beautiful that I keep on buying it and giving it away as presents, so far four or five copies.
The photography is really good but best of all are the quotes from the tribal people themselves. They talk of their environment with a love that is so touching that even thinking about their words brings tears to the eyes.
If in order to get more money you have to first eliminate the inhabitants before cutting down their trees, what are you? These people have no knowledge of Madoff, sub prime, the credit crunch and so on, they are people just wanting to survive in what for them is an increasingly hostile and oppressive world that is trying to wipe them out. Please everyone, get this truly celebratory book, then at least you will be aware of what is being done to these utterly defenceless yet wonderful fellow humans.

This is a really beautiful book which absorbed me for hours. It's got loads of fantastic photos of indigenous tribes from around the world, and also has their thoughts and wisdom in some short extracts. If you are interested in other cultures, I would recomend it.

A huge number of astounding photographs featuring unique people from the world over. All bound together with the stories, beliefs and views of the fascinating yet threatened tribal peoples who are its subject.

A very special book.
