The bestselling book that inspired the musical play and film The King and I

Enchanting. . . . The author wears her scholarship with grace, and the amazing story she has to tell is recounted with humor and understanding. And what a story it is! --Atlantic Monthly

Anna Leonowens, a proper Englishwoman, was an unlikely candidate to change the course of Siamese (Thai) history. A young widow and mother, her services were engaged in the 1860's by King Mongkut of Siam to help him communicate with foreign governments and be the tutor to his children and favored concubines.

Stepping off the steamer from London, Anna found herself in an exotic land she could have only dreamed of: a lush landscape of mystic faiths and curious people, and a king's palace bustling with royal pageantry, ancient custom, and harems. One of her pupils, the young prince Chulalongkorn, was particularly influenced by Leonowens and her Western ideals. He learned about Abraham Lincoln and the tenets of democracy from her, and years later he would become Siam's most progressive king. He guided the country's transformation from a feudal state to a modern society, abolishing slavery and making many other radical reforms.

Weaving meticulously researched facts with richly imagined scenes, Margret Landon recreates an unforgettable portrait of life in a forgotten exotic land. Originally published in 1944, and translated into dozens of languages, Anna and the King of Siam continues to delight and enchant readers around the world.
