Book synopsis/description:

The story is set in a sparsely populated tract of the heavily forested foothills of the Himalayas - an area that lies roughly between India and Nepal and in places is virtually untouched. The people of this area have minimal contact with the outside world and dwell entirely in the forest living off its produce. These are the Wild Honey Gatherers a race almost extinct they have strange ways and are rumoured to possess the ability to communicate with birds and beasts. When encountered they fade into the forest shadows. The villagers give them a wide berth fearing the strange occult or shaman powers they possess. That the forest spirits protect them is a widely-held belief. This story is about one such family...its secrets, its mystical powers, and its accord with nature.
