THE HILLTRIBES OF THAILAND
This small compendium tells a seldom expressed tale of a people and gender few would know without the voice of their craft. Amply illustrated and ripe with folklore and history, H'mong Batik provides a view of a culture as well as an illustrated guide to the unique heritage of a people constantly in transition.
Written by a Blue H'mong artisan and two anthropologists this book is a must for artists, scholars of refugee studies, anthropologists, storytellers, and anyone interested in the sometimes joyous, sometime sad stories of a people revealed in a unique way. A bibliography for further study is included.
