A light read, The Ghost Way offers a wonderful insight into the traditions and superstitions of Thai culture. Written by Lance Smith, with the help of his wife Kung Ramanakajja, this is the story of Eot and Jak Ramanakajja, and their arduous battle with the demons of troubled ancestors.
The ghost way, or tang pi in the local dialect, is a river passage in the up-country of Thailand, near Aksala village. The Ramanakajja’s once called the ghost way home, but since their ordeal, they’ve fled the long elephant grass and never looked back.
The story is a moral epic, providing wisdom of the ages, and bringing light to the underworld of Thai spirituality.
