Summary: This book is about a photographer's journey into Thailand to learn about the process of silk weaving. To engage the readers are the photographs he took of the people, the worms, the equipment, and the process from the worm eggs to the finished silk product along with his interactions with the Thailand people.
Review: I rated this book 5 stars and found it informational because it goes in depth at the process of silk acquiring and then the weaving done with it, all in a conventional narrative with helpful real-life pictures the author took himself. This book because of these aspects would engage readers even if they were not as interested in the silk process as I was when I first read it.
