Item description for Lao Close Encounters by John J. Burton...

This is a new pictorial odyssey through Laos, with 1,200 color 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 encyclopedic fashion. It passes through Vientiane and the familiar tourist destinations, colonial influences, the Vietnam War aftermath, daily life, agriculture and many other occupations, the pleasures and perils of travel, natural history, and each one of the countrys varied provinces. There is a rural flavor throughout, in keeping with this agrarian society. The culture and beauty of Laos are presented, while at the same time we are not spared from its problems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lao Close Encounters?

Pictorial tour  Mar 6, 2007
What a wonderful pictorial tour of a culture and country with a rich history unspoiled by tourism. The author captures people and places like no other I have seen.
Amazing book!  Nov 4, 2006
Here is a book that was sorely missing. It will interest not only travelers planning a trip to Laos but also those that just want an in depth look at the country and its people. There are an amazing number of photos covers all aspects of the country. I don't think any other tourist has seen as much of the's wonderful!
