"Wonders of the Annamites" takes readers on a journey through one of the wildest and most biodiverse parts of the world—a range of rugged mountains bordering Laos and Vietnam called the Annamites. Relatively unexplored until recent decades, the Annamite Mountains have been a recent a hotspot for wildlife discoveries new to science. This is the first children's book to focus exclusively on the animal wonders of this region.
The story follows a local father, daughter and son on a trek to visit their grandmother in this ancient, almost mystical, mountain landscape. Join them as they journey along rivers and through bamboo, up rocky cliffs and down into steamy tropical forests—and discover a wondrous world of wildlife along the way. Learn about the rare and recently discovered animal species only found in the Annamites such as the Saola, White-Cheeked Gibbon, Crested Argus, Red-Shanked Douc and other incredible iconic species of Southeast Asia.
“Wonders of the Annamites” was written & illustrated by Eric Losh in partnership with Project Anoulak, a conservation, science, research and educational project working in the Annamite Mountains in Laos. The book was first published in English, with later editions in French/English, Lao/English and Vietnamese/English.
