Forest Recollections: by Kamala Tiyavanich

From 1900 to 1950, Thai forests were home to wandering Buddhist monks. Their brand of Buddhism was not in doctrinal texts. It found expression in living day-to-day in the forest, contending with the mental and physical challenges of hunger, pain, fear, and desire. Combining interviews and biographies, the author documents the monastic lives of three generations of such monks.
