Dinaben is a Maldhari and her village is right in the middle of the Gir forest where the lions live. How does she live? What does she do? This book offers glimpses into the many aspects of life in the forest through simple text and photographs. Children will find it easy to follow the story in two languages.

Evocative

The book subtly brings out that both the animal and the tribe with their already marginalized lifestyle are under threat. It is important for us to respect nature. Otherwise neither the centuries old Maldhari tribe nor the lions will survive. The photos are evocative and rich... a map sets the geographical context... While there is so much publicity about protecting another endangered cat - the tiger- we hardly hear about lions in media. The set of facts about the Asiatic Lions at the end of the story will surely sensitize even young ones, towards the majestic King of the Jungle. Saffron Tree
