Amitav Ghosh

Jungle Nama

Regular price €18,00

Publisher: Neri Pozza

A legend hisses among the Sundarban islands, the largest mangrove forest in the world. It tells of a pact between man and nature, of an atavistic balance broken by the individual's greed, of intrusive desires and destructive passions. Not all villains are lost, not all good people are cunning, not all heroes are human, the wisest are those who know how to measure: in words, in gestures, in appetites.

This is the story of the jungle, because it is to the people of the jungle that the imperative narrated here belongs: to maintain a balance between the needs of humans and those of other creatures.

A story that crosses cultures, religions and animal forms, illuminated by drawings and musical verses.
