1 Review
A Kaleidoscope of color, Indonesia's 13,677 islands harbor hundreds of mammal species, birds and insects; its people originate from 300 ethnic groups encompassing all the Asian cultures and religions. A master of his subject, author Bill Dalton guides the reader to the best Indonesia has to offer, from ram fighting in Bandung to the isolated tribe of the Asmat people, together with detailed information on surfing, snorkeling, climbing volcanoes, and traditional dance and crafts. There is also a generous selection of excerpts from literature about Indonesia including V S Naipaul on a Japanese soldier and a bicycle and David Attenborough on the Komodo dragon.
