Synopsis: 'Faces of the Unreached in Laos' profiles 138 distinct ethno-linguistic people groups in Laos. Each profile contains pertinent cultural and historical information for each group, including a map and photograph of people in traditional dress. Superb full-color photographs are included throughout the book.
Non-Christian readers need to be aware that 'Faces of the Unreached in Laos' is a prayer guide intended for use by Christians and missionary agencies interested in Laos.
For centuries land-locked Laos has been the forgotten nation of Southeast Asia: forgotten by politicians, explorers and missionaries alike. AMO presents this new book to people around the world in a bid to raise awareness and outreach to the needy 138 people groups of Laos. This is the first known book to profile ALL the peoples of Laos.
Laos is one of the neediest, most ethnically diverse, and most strategic countries of the 10/40 window, but because of its relatively small population and Communist government few organizations consider Laos a priority.
From the Publisher: 'Faces of the Unreached in Laos' makes an excellent guide for individuals, groups, and organizations interesting in helping the poorest of the poor, or even if you are just interested in the thicket of ethnic groups and tribes in the fascinating nation of Laos. Each page has pertinent cultural and historical information of each group, plus maps and photographs. A number of superb full-color photographs are also included in the book. It is not a question of IS this the best book available on the various peoples of Laos, it is the ONLY ever publication to contain such thorough research. It makes an ideal souvenir for travelers, a vital guide for scholars, and a handbook for the adventurous.
