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 man and his 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 unshakeable sense of nostalgia. A must-read for a glimpse into a country that was and will never be quite as quirky.
