The usual prelude to such devastation is the disappearance of native cultures and native systems of land use. 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.
