In tropical America the aboriginal complex of forest cultures has been reduced to a few relics--exemplified here by Amerindians of Bocas del Toro Province in western Panama.  This book describes a previously widespread forest-saving system of land use practiced by the Indians of the area, and sketches the cultural and ecological conditions uder which such land use may be revived."...book. **This copy is not the one pictured.
