A Thousand Footprints by Tshering Wangchuk
Modernity was slow to come to Bhutan. In doing so, it shaped the lives of its people, old and young, in an unpredictable kaleidoscope of ways.
A collection of personal accounts of the author from over four decades. A Thousand Footprints captures the growing pains of a young country as they opened up to a world they little understood.
The author reflects on times and things passed through stories mottled with humor, satire and an unshakable sense of nostalgia. A must read for a glimpse into a country that was and will never be quite as quirky.
