    I have very much enjoyed reading this entrancing tacit romance and bold journey through a past that has vanished, overtaken since 1954 by globalisation and modernisation. It contains great intelligence; is a pleasure to read; and it conveys much affection for the peoples and cultures visited. It expertly paints pictures of Siam, Laos, Cambodia and their rivers, mountains, valleys and villages in economical, precise and evocative language. Scenes are brought alive by Patricia Simmonds, herself a painter, that remind me of the genius, author and artist Mervyn Peake, who drew on his early life in China. Everyone, from historians, linguists, politicians, diplomats to tourists, with an interest in this ancient, complex, turbulent region will benefit from this work. I will read it again. One of the best travel books produced.
