California-based author, artist, and photographer Dunham tells the story of warrior Buddhists in Kham, the southeastern section of Tibet and the northeastern provinces of Amdo Golok. They had an ancient reputation for rugged physical bearing and ferocious independence, and resisted incorporation into China during the 1950s. Buddhism, he says, provided them with a moral code and sense of oneness with all things Tibetan. Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
