The Peaceful People: The Penan and Their Fight for the Forest
Visiting as a tourist with his daughter in 2006, this Australian journalist became inquisitive about the shy and nomadic Penan, about whom he was able to glean little information. Without being put off by the rebuffs he received, he managed to pass through logging barricades to meet the tribes people who were trying their best at peaceful protest to the destruction of their environment. From interviews with them and extensive research in records going back to colonial times, Malone has produced what may well be the most comprehensive account of the Penan's troubled history of the last one hundred years and the dynamic that sustains them.
