Summary Annotation For most of the twentieth century, migrant settlers from throughout the Philippines have established homesteads and new ways of life on Palawan Island, a one-time forest wilderness celebrated as the Philippines' "last frontier". This volume presents a careful, longitudinal analysis of socioeconomic change in one Palawan settler community founded by migrant farmers and fisherfolk during the 1940s and 1950s. Based on detailed information at the levels of community, household, and individual spanning a twenty-five-year period.
