Mr Reihnard located the Raute tribe in January 1969 and did research on and off with them until April 1969, then again in
1975 and 1994 .

This is one of the last nomadic hunting-gathering tribes in the world.

They roam throughout the hills of
western Nepal hunting monkeys and trading wood vessels with villagers for grain.

The Author founds a related group, the Ban Raut,
living in Darchula  but gradually taking up agriculture and working as part time laborers for villagers.
