About the Book:
Tribal socio-economic life and forests are co-related terms without which tribal living cannot be imagined. Tribal economy is mostly hand to mouth economy. It is mainly confined to essentials viz.: food, shelter, cloth and herbs. Its social and cultural structure and level has been framed considering forest as base. With changing times and modern development tribals settlements are threatened and the role of jungles in supplying essentials is diminishing. Endeavour should be made that the jungle-based economy of the tribals are not made zero in near future.This book studies the two major aspects i.e., of tribal settlement in reserve forest areas and minor forest produce.
