4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Karyn W VINE VOICE on February 20, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a great effort between an American and an Vietnamese museum to create an interesting book about culture and traditions among many of Vietnam's people. There are tons of photographs and information about the many minority groups as well as the national Vietnamese residents of this populous country. Holidays, ceremonies, and religions are covered in quite some detail. I learned a lot from this book.
