In August, 1962, one of Boonserm Satrabhaya’s greatest achievements as a reporter took place when he entered the forest searching for the Mlabri (Yellow Leaf people), the last group of wild people in Thailand, of whom only about 300 still remain. He learned about this group of people from Kraisri Nimmanheminda, a well known banker in Chiang Mai who had read the story of Mlabri from a book written by a foreign anthropologist and his Australian wife in 1936.

He requested Boonserm to investigate these people and publish their story for the Thai people.
