     The River Brahmaputra runs from the Himalayas in Tibet, through India, and on through Bangladesh, winding its way through three countries, numerous languages and cultures, and three great religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Tales from the River Brahmaputra follows the course of this sacred river with 150 stunning photos accompanied by descriptive text, seeing in its timeless flowing an allegory of birth, childhood, youth, maturity, and old age. The book chronicles the lives of the people who live along the river and their relationship to it, as well as each region's architecture, agriculture, history, religion, and culture.
