BHUTAN: Hidden Lands of Happiness
BHUTAN: Hidden Lands of Happiness

Himalayan folksongs sing of beyul - hidden lands of happiness seen only by those of pure heart. Tucked into the towering peaks and steep forested valleys of the Eastern Himalayas, the Bhutanese believe they live in such a place. From the yak pastures along the Tibetan border to the rice lands in the south, BHUTAN: Hidden Lands of Happiness takes the reader on a cultural and geographical journey far from the beaten track. One hundred and eight black and white photos create a portal across centuries. Clear, skillfully composed, rich in depth and detail, these superb images illustrate a tale of a people trying to balance postmodern development with their Buddhist worldview. An allegory of the global search for happiness in a consumer driven world, this is a story told by people who claim to value Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product.
