I spent over six weeks living with the Penan of Borneo during a year out between A Levels and University. The Penan believe that by sharing their stories of the jungle and its importance with those who now have the power to influence its survival, they may be able to keep it for a while longer. 'Stories from a Settled Tribe' has resulted in part from that belief, and is a collection of stories told by the Penan of Long Lamai about whatever is most important to the individuals there. There are stories about the struggles of this tribe to keep their land and to survive against the odds; there are stories about their hopes for the future; and there are stories about the use of hunting weapons (namely, the blow pipe) and the making of jungle music (of particular interest is the nose flute). This is a must for anyone interested in tribal livelihood and survival as well as conservation, and it will be of interest to academics studying culture and religion.
