Norman Lewis



Book Description
A collection of three works of travel literature published together in one volume. "A Dragon Apparent" takes Norman Lewis to Indo-China during the precarious last years of the French colonial regime. Before the devastation of the Vietnam War, much of the charm and grandeur of the ancient native civilizations had survived. In "Golden Earth", Lewis travels to Burma, where he fell in love with the land and its people. Although much of the countryside was under the control of insurgent armies, he managed - by steamboat, decrepit lorry and Dacoit-besieged train - to travel almost everywhere he wanted and to see brilliant spectacles, still out of our reach. In "A Goddess in the Stones", Lewis undertakes a journey of 2500 miles in search of the old India described by early travellers, in the belief that it remained undiscovered. Staying in the mountains of the east, he investigated the extraordinary customs of some of the three million tribal people who have survived there in isolation. "A Goddess in the Stones" won the Thomas Cook Travel Writing Award 1991.
