About This Book

Modern roads and industrial developments are bringing fundamental changes to the terrain and peoples of Southwest China, home to the Miao, Dong, Yi, Zhuang and other ethnically distinctive groups. The vivid, full-page photographs in this pictorial introduction to this part of China were taken over the last ten years. They show aspects of the traditional lifestyles of the different ethnic groups that are in danger of being dropped in favour of the modern lifestyle. With sketch map and suggested itineraries.
