Color images from Forests are Gold

Several of the images in my book Forests are Gold: Trees, People and Environmental Rule in Vietnam had to be reproduced in the book in black and white. I have posted photos of the originals here for those who are interested in more details. Clicking on the photo will take you to a higher quality jpg image file.
