Abstract:

"When Myanmar (formerly Burma) opened its borders in 1992, the last obstacle to traversing the entire length of the Southeast Asian Mekong River fell, and photographer Kenji Aoyagi was finally able to complete his decade-long odyssey down this immense, fabled waterway. His photographs provide a breathtaking paean to the magnificent Mekong in its pristine state and the age-old cultures of the ethnic minorities who live along its banks." "In Southeast Asia, the gradual resolution of political conflicts has brought about explosive economic growth, and with it the ravages of industrialization and pollution. This photographic collection is the first - and will probably be the last - record of the unspoiled beauty of the Mekong and its people. Mekong, The Last River provides a final glimpse into the traditions of the indigenous peoples whose ways of life, so intimately linked to the river, will soon be irrevocably changed forever."--BOOK JACKET.
