Description


Introducing a small, little known country in South Asia, this stunning photographic journey pays tribute to Bhutan’s beautiful ancient culture and landscape. Based on travels from west to east, the text and photographs focus on themes such as history, lifestyle, beliefs, democratization, and environment. This is a visual, informative, and personal account of Bhutan at a time when its government is changing from feudal to democratic and its people are deciding how to balance materialism with spiritualism.
