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 lover’s experience of learning from a forest-dweller — and is beautifully illustrated to bring alive the dark richness of an lndian tropical forest.
