Nafanua: Saving the Samoan Rain Forest By Paul Alan Cox
eBook (ePub): $9.95
Ethnobotanist Paul Alan Cox traveled with his family to a remote Samoan village at the edge of a rain forest to search for new leads in treating cancer. Working with both native healers and the U.S.... More > National Cancer Institute, Cox discovered a promising new plant-derived drug, prostratin, for an equally serious malady: AIDS. The promise of this new drug lead was soon overshadowed by news that a logging company had started to destroy the rain forest where Cox first collected the plant that yielded prostratin. Cox launched an international campaign to stop the logging of the Falealupo Rain Forest. In Nafanua, he tells the moving story of those efforts, and his involvement in related campaigns to create a U.S. National Park in American Samoa and to place Samoa’s endangered flying foxes under international protection. Cox’s conservation efforts, however, were ultimately followed by a devastating series of events that threatened the lives of himself, his family, the villagers, and everything they had worked for.< Less
