The book documents traditional life in Mayan and Garifuna communities in southern Belize. The photographer lived in three villages during January, 2007. He donated photos used in this book to EcoLogic Development Fund to help further EcoLogic's conservation programs in the villages and rainforest of southern Belize.

Recently, in an historic ruling, the Belize Supreme Court recognized the traditional land rights of these indigenous communities, barring unauthorized oil exploration and land development on their pristine land.
