Buy this and Thailand Reflected in a River and get a bookmark made from the boat
By Steve Van Beek
Wind & Water Publishing
436 pages
Softbound


While living in a wooden house on stilts on the edge of the Chao Phya River, I became curious about the river's source and course. Unable to find any information, I decided to trace it from its source on the northern border with Burma to the sea. In a small teak boat built by a village craftsman, I paddled for 58 days to the ocean. It was a journey that introduced me to a Thailand I'd not known existed and to a cast of characters I could not have invented, many of whom became fast friends. The book has been called "The Best Travel Book Ever Written about Thailand" but read the sample chapters below and decide for yourself. The 436-page, softbound book is available in English.

Read an excerpt from the prologue and a chapter, Sin the Buffalo Man,

Now, read what the critics had to say.

And look at photos of the Chao Phya River that the book celebrates
