Sundarban the beautiful forest in the southern border of West Bengal is the richest mangrove ecosystem in the global perspective. It is not only charming as its name implies but is characterised by tremendous awe inspiring nature having multitude of mangrove species and numerous dreadful animal forms both in land and water. The network of mangrove forest is criss crossed by the turbulent rivers and estuaries which are abundant in fish population of multifarious varieties. Sundarban fishermen are the traditional workers in this glorious ecological niche and their main principle of working in the midst of dreadful land and water is very naturally the adaptation of various measures to cope with the multifaceted untoward circumstances. Sundarban fishermen by virtue of their traditional strategies associated with indomitable mental set up could have been able to explore the geo physical dimensions socio bio ecological background as well as animal behaviour in their own concepts and understandings. The book is based on the integrated effort for highlighting the processes and procedures of the indigenous fishing communities through time and space to grapple with the eco environmental setting in making their living through uninterrupted fishing operations. The life and work of Sundarban fisherfolk are centred round the interactions of man fish and water. The reciprocal action orientations of these three interrelated factors have well been illustrated in the book for going deep into the eco cultural and techno economic spheres of activities of these traditional fishing personnel. 272 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 72892
