About this book

Reindeer-herding Ewenki hunters have lived in the forests of China's Greater Khingan Range for over three hundred years. They have sustained their livelihoods by collecting plants and herbs, hunting animals and herding reindeer. This ethnography details changing Ewenki ways of life brought first by China's modernization and development policies and more recently by ecological policies that aim to preserve and restore the badly damaged ecologies of western China. Xie reflects on modernization and urbanization in China through this study of ecological migration policies and their effects on relocated Aoluguya Ewenki hunters.

Media reviews

"This landmark study of a community of sedentarized Ewenki reindeer herders living in Inner Mongolia [...] is at once deeply sympathetic and penetratingly astute from a scholarly point of view. Rich in detail about the group's tumultuous historical experiences over the past century, the narrative weaves together multiple threads from traditional Ewenki forest culture with the challenges posed by adaptation to settled life. This book will doubtless capture the interest of both anthropologists and social historians, as the need to scientifically evaluate the effects of analogous ecological migrations in other areas of the globe becomes more urgent [...] Highly recommended."
– Choice

"Through a detailed analysis of the policy of 'ecological migration,' Xie uncovers the inside story of a misguided policy that resulted in various conflicts [...] this book provides a good account of the Reindeer Evenki of China and will be useful for those interested in the policies of the Chinese government directed towards nomadic groups scattered within its borders."
