I am not so a book reader (more a practiser), but after reading this book: Forest Recollections by Kamala Tiyavanich, it have answered some of my questions.

It is a collection from different biography books, most are collected of their biography from Thai books. It is a fruitful collection about their path of practice, their difficulties, their obstacles, and how they overcame this. I recommend this book for those who is interested in the Thai Forest tradition, Dhutanga Kammaṭṭāna.

Thank you Subhatto, I am sure this publication will be of great interest particularly those who practice under the guidance of the Thai Forest tradition masters.
many thanks,

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
