Bourhan belongs to the Minang people and has trained monkeys his whole life. In the Koto clan he is considered a master. But Bourhan does not raise monkeys anymore; he is retired. Bourhan is old and weary, too weary to live with a monkey. Or so he thought until his wife received an inheritance from an old aunt. The inheritance consisted of some jewels, a few sticks of furniture and a monkey named Bobo!
This is part of the Lords of the Animals series, which presents amazing stories of human and animal coexistence from around the world.
