    A study of the way in which the Kelabit people of Borneo relate to their natural environment.

    This book explores the fascinating way this tribe constructs a socially and cosmologically ordered world through their relationship with the rainforest, particularly the use of forest materials in craftwork, and through the growing of rice.

    Catalogues of the collections made by the author for the British and Sarawak Museums are included in addition to numerous photographs of hunting and gathering, of collecting of handicraft materials, and of items being made and in use.

    The volume will be of interest to scholars of Borneo and to those interested in the social and symbolic significance of material culture, as well as to those interested in the relationship between humans and their natural environment.
