Product Overview

The Tonle Sap, Cambodia's Great Lake and its yearly flood is one of Southeast Asia's natural wonders. In the dry season measuring 'only' 150 by 20 kilometres, by the peak of the wet season it has expanded to some 250 kilometres long and in places more than 100 kilometres wide, increasing in depth from 1 to more than 10 metres and in area from 2,500 to about 13,000 square kilometers. This annual phenomenon has given rise not only to the great ancient empire of Angkor, but to one of the world's most productive fisheries and the last stronghold for some of the world's most endangered large waterbirds.
Colin Poole, Director of the Asia Program for the Wildlife Conservation Society lived in Cambodia for eight years, while Eleanor Briggs has been photographing on the Tonle Sap for more than ten years. Through text and photographs together they examine all aspects of the Tonle Sap and Cambodia's fascinating and beautiful environment, its fauna, history, culture and future.
