Product description

From Library Journal

Less known than its Himalayan neighbors Tibet and Nepal, Bhutan is the subject of few books. Yet, as French photographer and reporter Dompnier strikingly demonstrates, it is a fascinating country with a unique Buddhist culture, strong traditions, great variations in topography from jungle to barren towering mountains, and, so far, relative isolation from the outside world. Primarily a book of photographs, this work is a good introduction to both the natural and cultural landscape. Particularly commendable are the many photos of people carrying out their daily routines or, elaborately garbed, participating in religious festivals. Most public libraries should have at least one book on Bhutan, and while this one is expensive, it is the kind of book that will generate further interest, capturing Bhutan as it is now before the inevitable tourist invasion.
