Reading a people's mythology permits a fascinating entry into
another culture. To help the reader appreciate the details of the
myth, Anthony Walker provides an ethnographic introduction to the
Lahu people and their way of life. A social anthropologist, Dr.
Walker has spent over thirty years studying Lahu cultural
traditions. He lived for four years in a Lahu village in North
Thailand and subsequently has made almost annual visits to this and
other Lahu villages in Thailand and, since 1990, in China. This is
the first time that a major English-language translation of the
Lahu myth of creation has been published.
