Rate this:
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. of clothing, jewelry, body painting and other forms of personal adornment. Explanations of rituals, ceremonies and festivals ? many rarely seen by outsiders ? offer an invaluable insight into these ancient but adaptable peoples who survive in the most isolated regions, and withstand both the increasing pressures of encroaching civilization and the destruction of their natural environment.
