Death By a Thousand Cuts

two men stand facing each other with machetes in the slash-and-burn remnants of a forest.

A park-ranger's brutal murder opens the way for a journey into the depths of the illegal charcoal trade in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. A tangled web of desperation, maneuvering and corruption worthy of a crime novel, exposes the truth behind the rampant deforestation it leaves in its trail.
