eBook Category: People
eBook Description: A chronicle of life on the resplendent island, combining the immediacy of memoir with the vividness of travelogue and reportage
Missing neither the nuances of the peaceful Buddhist pace of life nor the explosive violence of its protracted civil war and the 2004 tsunami, Adele Barker offers an eye-opening account of the “pearl” of the Indian Ocean, inviting American readers to experience firsthand the vivid beauty and turmoil of a place few have ever visited.
