Welcome to the wonderful and exhilarating world of Vietnam! This book is a celebration of the delightful cultures and rich tapestries of life throughout the country, as seen through the eyes and experiences of an acclaimed travel photographer and Vietnam War veteran. Author John Powers begins with a glimpse up north, sharing images from the Lao Cai region, Hanoi, and then on to Ha Long Bay, where numerous ethnic backgrounds converge and there are still pockets that western cultural influences have barely touched. Moving to the central and southern regions of Vietnam, he provides delightful and moving glimpses into the lifestyles and people of Vietnam’s more industrialized and westernized regions. Throughout the engaging images and text, you’ll be treated to a tantalizing glimpse into this often misunderstood part of the world.
