2 - 4 weeks availability


This is a new pictorial odyssey through Laos, with 1,200 colour photographs of subjects 'closely encountered' in all districts throughout the length and breadth of the land between 2001 and 2005, identified and indexed in an almost encyclopaedic fashion. It passes through Vientiane and the familiar tourist destinations, colonial influences, the aftermath of the Vietnam War, daily life, agriculture and many other occupations, the pleasures and perils of travel, natural history, and each one of the country's varied provinces. There is a rural flavour throughout, in keeping with this agrarian society. The culture and beauty of Laos are presented, while at the same time we are not spared its many inherent problems.
