THE ANCIENTS: BHUTAN DIARIES -- SERENA CHOPRA. Limited Editions, Academic Foundation, New Delhi, 2015. 358 pp. with 130 ills. 24 x 24 cm. ISBN 9789332701991 In English.
Publisher's description: Serena Chopra takes the reader into an extraordinary journey through the living landscape of this fascinating country -- its powerful monasteries, kingdoms, mountains, rivers, rites, rituals and ceremonies. She shows how Bhutan, nestled between India and China, and which remained shrouded in mystery, has evolved into a distinctive culture with a political, economic, and a social fabric unique to this calm and peaceful nation. The real value of the book comes not from the places and facts she describes but from her decision to base her journey as an inner quest giving it both a sense of history and glimpses into the future of Bhutan. She photographs with a vision that comes from a subtle understanding of the truth of the Bhutanese people. The book has high production values, is thoroughly readable and a feast for the eyes.
