About the Author

Edith Mirante has roamed Asia since the early 1980s, collecting information on human rights and environmental issues. In 1986 she founded Project Maje, an information project on Burma. She has investigated atrocities and resistance in some of the most remote corners of Burma's frontier war zones. Her latest book, The Wind in the Bamboo required extensive research and trips to India, Malaysia and the Philippines.


How can we know anything about cultural worlds that lie far beyond our daily lives, save for the gifts and stories of those who risk all to go there? I read this book as if it were a personal gift, opening my imagination to places I had never been but had always wanted to go. -- Wade Davis, author of The Wayfinders Edith Mirante takes the reader on a great pan-Asian adventure. This is a timely and vital journey among ancient people struggling to survive in the modern world. -- Emma Larkin, author of Finding George Orwell in Burma With insight, outrage, and crisp humor, Mirante tells a story of dispossession, discrimination, and environmental degradation. She also introduces us to a memorable cast of characters, including allies who support those struggling for justice and respect. An important book for travelers, anthropologists, and all who care about the fate of aboriginal populations in a rapidly changing world. -- Barbara Sjoholm, author of The Palace of the Snow Queen: Winter Travels in Lapland
