This book is a great read as it is both interesting and exciting. The authors, a Swedish journalist and his pregnant(!) Shan hilltribe wife sneaks into Burma via India and travel for 18 months trough the hilltribe guerilla controlled areas of Burma, finishing their journey in 1987, one year before the student protests in 1988. The authors meet leaders, shamans and ordinary people caught up in the conflict.

Terrific, lively, an epic journey through Upper Burma 19 April 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bertil Lintner was the first westerner to visit Kachin state of Upper Burma since the early 1960s. He and his Shan wife and newborn child travelled all across the insurgent-held territories of Upper Burma in what was one of the great adventures of the 1980s. Linter provides tremendous political detail on the area he travelled through. A great book. Absolutely superb reading
