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.

"More than just an armchair travel guide . . . a sensitive and almost meditative book . . . Bhutan Heartland paints a fascinating picture of the country's culture at a grassroots level." --Have-A-Go News "An outstanding photo journal on the life and times of Bhutan . . . breathtaking scenery and fascinating stories of the Bhutanese people." --Sunday Times "An evocative book which captures the transition from tradition to modernity in the world's newest democracy . . . brilliant and evocative photographs and stories." --Courier Mail
