"Face down in the mud, we search inside ourselves for what the Baka call njele: fierce courage. The fury of a wounded leopard with a paw caught in a trap. The snarl of a gorilla defending its troop. The anger buried deep in each of us that keeps us from breaking down, gives us the strength to go on regardless."

Luis Devin, The Forest Has You
(La foresta ti ha - Castelvecchi/LIT Edizioni)
