about

As she approaches her sixties, Ma Thanegi decides to satisfy a lifelong dream. Jumping on any boat that would let her onboard, she begins a leisurely exploration of Myanmar's thirteen hundred-mile long Ayeyarwaddy River. Always hungry—for food, conversation, and a good story—Ma Thanegi clearly savors and vividly describes every adventure she encounters, whether she is traveling into the Cyclone Nargis-stricken delta region, feeding a dragon, or careening down the rock-infested white-water gorge of the Ayeyarwaddy's First Defile. You'll love accompanying this opinionated and delightful lady on an odyssey that takes her through much of Myanmar—never without great passion for her country, a wicked sense of humor, and her tube of red lipstick.

Ma ThanegiAn artist, a writer, and a former political prisoner, Ma Thanegi has “walked the walk in every aspect of her varied life. The author of the travel classic,The Native Tourist, she has written many books on the art and history of Myanmar.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEFILED ON THE AYEYARWADDY This is a delightful read. Ma Thanegi tells stories of travelling on the great river, enticing us to come and visit Myanmar. Her gentle humour makes one smile and her sense of adventure is inspiring. The book is full of her photographs which are in a strange mixture of blues and reds, not full colour. These hint at the beauty of the country and make one realize what a talented woman se is.
