This book tells the story of people in central Mindanao who, over time, developed a masterful capacity to borrow from the new without losing touch with the old, reimagining themselves not as willing western clones or stubborn tribal traditionalists, but as virtuosos at articulating between multiple ways of being. Its central question is: How did they negotiate the middle ground in a world of swirling change? In answering that question. Dr. Edgerton provides a fascinating case study that will be invaluable to scholars everywhere who seek to understand how people with little power manage to articulate a changing sense of identity in the face of forces far more powerful than themselves.

Ronald K. Edgerton is emeritus professor of Asian History at the Univesity of Northern Colorado where he also served as director of the University Honors Program. His fascination with the people of Bukidnon owes much to his years as a Peace Corps volunteer when he and his wife, Becky Richards Edgerton, stumbed off a buss in Malaybalay and into the waiting arms of Grandma Cudal (Marcela Abello Cudal), the central personality in this history. Dr. Edgerton has returned to central Mindanao many times. He owes a profound debt of gratitude to individuals there who have taught him what it means, in terms of courage, tenacity and creativity to live as people of the middle ground.
