Summary

A sensitive and personal portrayal featuring 889 pictures of ten tribes from Thailand, Laos, Burma, Vietnam and the Philippines. This original and innovative book embodies traditions that have evolved over thousands of years and which are slowly vanishing. A lavish production and an invaluable historical record that combines anthropology and popular culture. "I chose to dedicate these pictures and stories to the tribes people themselves, in the hope that their way of life and works of art can be preserved through the protection afforded through public recognition. I offer this book as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, recognizing in the lives of these tribes that essential strength resides, and the endurance of their culture is insured."--David Howard, in the Dedication
