The Land of Laos book cover

The Land of Laos

When we ask people what subjects they'd like to read about in our next books, "Lao History" is a frequent response. This brief history of Laos, by the country's most prolific writer, is illustrated with many old drawings and woodcuts. It recalls the kingdoms of the past: The Land of a Million Elephants, key rulers such as Fa Ngum, the colonial era as a part of French Indochina, and the fight for independence.
