Anna and the King of Siam (1st Thus)
Anna and the King of Siam takes place during the time of the Civil War in America but on the other side of the world; Anna is a teacher for many of the King of Siam's children and concubines. As as teacher she has many questions, but most notable are the questions about the man who rules over a kingdom where squalor and splendor, and cruelty and wisdom flourish side-by-side.
This classic book came about from years of research, and it gives a rare glimpse into the world of the Oriental court. Captivating all the more by the fact that it is a fictionalized story based on the diaries kept by Anna Leonowens.
It was been adapted to the stage, for television, and for film.
This is a beautiful first Thus pocket book copy that shows some wear that is in line with its age, but still in overall good shape.
