In the dying days of the Vietnam War, a royal family is rounded up and flown by helicopter to a remote prison camp. Behind the bamboo curtain erected by victorious communist guerillas, the tragic final days of an Asian king and his dynasty will play out.

Bestselling author of the Carpet Wars, Christopher Kremmer takes readers on a gripping odyssey to Indochina's heart of darkness, the remote prison camp where the Kingdom of the Million Elephants and the White Parasol finally ends.

Part travelogue, part mystery, Bamboo Palace reveals the only known eye-witness account of the final solution carried out in the jungles of northern Laos.
