Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
From visits to this Himalayan kingdom totaling seven months from 1999 to 2005, Mary Peck's fifty-six black-and-white photographs command attention and allow the reader to look at the landscapes, people, ceremonies, and architecture as if witnessed firsthand. From the Introduction: While I have learned much about Bhutan since I left there (lessons from reading, very different from the lessons of walking) and about the big challenges that small countries face, what I saw in Bhutan was a landscape and culture that reminded me of Wallace Stegner s personal expression of faith in the importance of geography, and especially wilderness, to human personality and culture. Calling wilderness the geography of hope, Stegner dreamed of a day when those in the American West would create a society to match its scenery. Bhutan was reassuring in its wholeness.
