Linguist Ian Mackenzie tracks the last true nomadic hunting and gathering people on earth-the Penan of Borneo. Their way of life is quickly disappearing as aggressive logging interests swallow up their forest habitat. Mackenzie has spent years compiling the very first dictionary of the unique Penan language-a language that has words for every forest plant and creature and serves as a window into an entirely different way of seeing the world. The Last Nomads is a beautiful but heartbreaking look at a very singular people on the brink of obliteration.
