Overview

The origins of mountains and plains. The power of winds and sea. the turbulent courses of the rivers. The mysteries of plant and animal life. These are just a few of the wonders of southeast Asia, now illuminated in this anthology. The editor, a well-known environmental biologist who spent forty years in the region, has collected writings, from ancient times to the present, that reveal its natural beauty. Each abstract describes the area as directly experienced by the writer, and some passages have been taken from specialist sources that general readers rarely encounter. The book also includes illustrations and commentary from Lord Cranbrook himself. His collection will fascinate travelers, geographers, historians, naturalists, and general readers alike.
