A dragon apparent; travels in Indo-China by Norman Lewis( Book )

28 editions published between 1951 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Travelling through Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia in the twilight of the French colonial regime, Norman Lewis witnesses these ancient civilisations as they were before the terrible devastation of the Vietnam War. He creates a portrait of traditional societies struggling to retain their integrity in the embrace of the West. He meets emperors and slaves, brutal plantation owners and sympathetic French officers trapped by the economic imperatives of the colonial experiment. From tribal animists to Viet-Minh guerillas, he witnesses this heart-breaking struggle over and over, leaving a vital portrait of a society on the brink of catastrophic change."--BOOK JACKET
Golden earth; travels in Burma by Norman Lewis( Book )

24 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite communist incursions and tribal insurrection, Norman Lewis describes a land of breathtaking natural beauty peopled by the gentle Burmese. This is a country where Buddhist belief spares even the rats, where the Director of Prisons quotes Chaucer and where three-day theatrical shows are staged to celebrate a monk taking orders. Hitching lifts with the army and travelling merchants, Lewis is treated to hospitality wherever he stops in this war-torn land, and reveals a country where 'the condition of the soul replaces that of the stock market as a topic for polite conversation'
A goddess in the stones : travels in India by Norman Lewis( Book )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating portrait of the eclectic tribes of India and the remote regions that they inhabit In the 1990s, the fifty-four million members of India & rsquo;s tribal colonies accounted for seven percent of the country & rsquo;s total population & mdash;yet very little about them was recorded. Norman Lewis depicts India & rsquo;s jungles as being endangered by & ldquo;progress, & rdquo; and his sense of urgency in recording what he can about the country & rsquo;s distinct tribes results in a compelling and engaging narrative. From the poetic Muria people whose diet includes monkeys, red ants, and crocodiles, to the tranquil mountain tribes who may be related to the Australian Aborigines, to the naked Mundas people who may shoot, with bow and arrow, anyone who laughs in their direction, Lewis chronicles the unique characteristics of the many tribes that find their way of life increasingly threatened by the encroachment of modernity
