Down the Rat Hole: Adventures Underground on Burma's Frontiers

by Edith Miranted - £17.99  Orchid Press (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9789745240506 | ISBN 10: 9745240508

A new memoir of the author's journeys among the brave indegenous peoples of some of Asia's most remote and violent regions. Knowledgably obsessed with Burma's struggle for freedom, American artist/activist Mirante breaks laws and infiltrates borders, in impassioned journeys of discovery that take her through China, India, Laos and chaotic Bangladesh. Down the Rat Hole is a wild and exotic headlong plunge into a hidden world of guerilla warfare, heroin and jade trading, the AIDS pandemic, rainforest destruction, strikes and rioting, and one of the worst natural disasters of the century.
