About the Author

Jim Goodman, an American-born writer and photographer, has been based in Asia since 1972 and works with the Thai branch of the Hani nationality, with whom he has been engaged in handicrafts production in Chiang Mai since 1988. He travels to Yunnan regularly and has published many books and articles on the province and its people.


"Happy people! What do they know of the strife and turmoil of the western world? We wear ourselves out saving time in one direction that we may waste it in another, hurrying and ever hurrying through time as if we were disgusted with life, but these people think of time not in miles an hour but according to the rate at which their crops grow in the spring, and their fruits ripen in the autumn. They work that they and their families may have enough to eat and enough to wear, living and dying where they were born, where their offspring will live and die after them, as did their ancestors before them, shut in by the mountains which bar access from the outer world. - Frank Kingdon Ward - "
