For forty-four days, Michael Benanav lived and travelled with the Van Gujjars, a forest-dwelling tribe of nomadic buffalo herders in northern India. He went to document their traditional way of life, but there was trouble on the trail: the Uttarakhand forest department threatened to block nomadic families from the pastures they relied on for the survival of their herds.A fascinating account of life on the road with nomads, this book tells the story of one family s quest to save their buffaloes, and themselves. It portrays an intimate picture of the hopes, fears,hardships and joys of people who wonder if there is still a place for them on this planet.
