A new memoir of the author's journeys among the brave indegenous peoples of some of Asia's most remote and violent regions. Knowledgably obsessed with Burma's struggle for freedom, American artist/activist Mirante breaks laws and infiltrates borders, in impassioned journeys of discovery that take her through China, India, Laos and chaotic Bangladesh. Down the Rat Hole is a wild and exotic headlong plunge into a hidden world of guerilla warfare, heroin and jade trading, the AIDS pandemic, rainforest destruction, strikes and rioting, and one of the worst natural disasters of the century.
