'Faces of the Unreached in Laos' profiles 138 distinct ethno-linguistic people groups in Laos. Each profile contains pertinent cultural and historical information for each group, including a map and photograph of people in traditional dress. Superb full-color photographs are included throughout the book.

Non-Christian readers need to be aware that 'Faces of the Unreached in Laos' is a prayer guide intended for use by Christians and missionary agencies interested in Laos.

For centuries land-locked Laos has been the forgotten nation of Southeast Asia: forgotten by politicians, explorers and missionaries alike. AMO presents this new book to people around the world in a bid to raise awareness and outreach to the needy 138 people groups of Laos. This is the first known book to profile ALL the peoples of Laos.

Laos is one of the neediest, most ethnically diverse, and most strategic countries of the 10/40 window, but because of its relatively small population and Communist government few organizations consider Laos a priority.

When published, LAOS existed as a land-locked nation of about 5.2 million people, which developed at a slower pace than its neighbors. Ethnographic and anthropological materials on Laos are scarce. Within Laos, over 130 different ethnic / language groups of people exist. it is hard to identify the groups and learn their languages. Their people often cannot converse with one another. This is believed to be the first book ever written on ALL the people groups of LAOS. There are so many distinct groups in one small country. This is a Christian based book, which was compiled to fill the great need among outreach ministries in LAOS. This book is hard to find and normally lists for more than $100 when available.
