Every spring for centuries, the Van Gujjar people have migrated with their beloved water buffaloes from the forests of India to the high Himalayan meadows. Humankind's changing relationship with nature—and the laws and corruption that go along with it—have endangered this ancient way of life. Wanting to document the plight of this nomadic tribe, American journalist and mountain guide Michael Benanav finds himself accepted into a Van Gujjar family, and making their yearly journey with them. Himalaya Bound offers a thrilling and heartfelt glimpse into a fascinating culture teetering on the edge of extinction. (CH)
