Behind the veil of tourism in Asia’s most stunning National Parks, people and animals share the same backyard. The result is a fusion of great stories, engaging characters and rare and endangered wildlife against a backdrop of drama and beauty. Meet the gentle Shinto people who have learned how to live in the shadow of an active volcano, a tribal man who cares for orphan elephants by day while his village is threatened by wild elephants at night and see how the spirits of a tropical island off Borneo stopped a local Imam from cutting down the rainforest. One-horned rhinoceroses, Asiatic elephants, Guizhou golden monkeys and a cast of other wildlife characters fill the lands of Asia from the flood plains of India to the granite peaks of China’s holy mountains. The interwoven stories of man and beasts are illuminated by charming characters which captivate audiences while bringing dramatic appeal.
