This book provides an overview of exploration work done in parts of Central Laos and on the borders of Laos with Cambodia and Vietnam, parts of French Indochina. The various itineraries in Laos cover the search for passages between the Mekong and the Vietnamese coast, the country of the Puan people and territories inhabited by tribes which were either under Vietnam’s or Siam’s sovereignty or called themselves independent. The book also documents lifestyles and customs of various Moi, Bahnar, Djiarai, Sedang, and other primitive tribes. Some of these forgotten ethnic groups had already been visited by French Catholic missionaries who contributed valuable ethnic data to the reports of the Pavie Mission. Volume 2 of this series, Atlas of the Pavie Mission, contains the maps accompanying these explorations.
