Remote, Northern Burma

by AirTalk

Larry Mantle is joined by a man the New York Times calls "The Indiana Jones of Wildlife Exploration," Alan Rabinowitz. His new book, Beyond the Last Village (Island Press), documents his fascinating 500 mile journey, on foot, into remote Northern Myannmar. There he discovered a totally new species of barking deer, encountered an isolated and dwindling population of Mongoloid pygmies, and came across creatures few people have ever seen.
