Literature about Bhutan is scarce. This lovely book gives not only the history of the Bhutanese Royal family, but good insight into the people, traditions & lands as well. The only drawback is that it ends with the reign of the 3rd King, it would have been far more complete to include the reign of the 4th too. Having said that, well worth reading for anyone with an interest in this small Himalayan kingdom.

Bhutan Raven Crown28 Jun. 2009

Bhutan has a special place in our Family. What a pristine place .Having lived there and witnessed the country's social structure and then reading more about the King and his rising to power, a power endowed by his people, who loved him most, in The Ravne Crown is unstoppable. DR PSNagi
