People Of The Rainforest

by John Hemming, People Of The Rainforest Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download People Of The Rainforest books, In 1945, three young brothers joined and eventually led Brazil's first government-sponsored expedition into its Amazonian rainforests. After more expeditions into unknown terrain, they became South America's most famous explorers, spending the rest of their lives with the resilient tribal communities they found there. People of the Rainforest recounts the Villas Boas brothers' four thrilling and dangerous 'first contacts' with isolated indigenous people, and their lifelong mission to learn about their societies and, above all, help them adapt to modern Brazil without losing their cultural heritage, identity and pride. Author and explorer John Hemming vividly traces the unique adventures of these extraordinary brothers, who used their fame to change attitudes to native peoples and to help protect the world's surviving tropical rainforests, under threat again today.

The People Of The Forest

by Roselina Johari Md Khir, The People Of The Forest Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The People Of The Forest books, The People of the Forest highlight the plight of the orangutan deep in the rainforests of Sabah, and other parts of Malaysia. The orangutan is the largest tree-living mammal in the world. They are facing extinction due to excessive clearance and destruction of big tracts of forests for commercial logging, legal or otherwise, plus, their own low reproductive rate which makes orangutan population excessively vulnerable to mortality. Their population just takes a long time to recover from a decline. It takes about 4 years of weaning before the young orangutan becomes independent from their mother after which she will be ready to give birth to a second young. This musical moves around a baby orangutan which is named Wira or hero. Wira grows up to be a mischievous individual which never takes no for an answer, so we will follow his adventures in the rainforest with his friends, the proboscis monkey, the pygmy elephant, the mouse-deer, the Sumatran rhino, the hornbill, the clouded leopard, the Malayan tiger, the banteng, the sun bear and the tapir, all endangered species. Wiras adventures will lead him to rescue an infant female orang utan in captivity of illegal loggers in the forest. There are 13 songs in the musical. The live orchestra accompanying the play should use bamboo flutes, bamboo wind chimes, ziters, sampoton, thus capturing the rhythm of the rainforest. Roselina Khir Johari
