Write The First Customer Review

In this stirring memoir, Gargan's travels down the Mekong River reveal a frame of modernity settling uneasily on regions still mired in backwardness and poverty: Internet cafes near villages without electricity; the magnificent Angkor Wat, a hub of tourism surrounded by the ruins of Pol Pot's genocidal reign; and the Mekong, itself, shaping landscapes, linking cultures, and sustaining populations. 34 photos. 11 maps.
