Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book Life on the Edge of the DMZ. The Diamond Mountain railway began at Ch'ŏrwŏn, and passed Chŏngyŏn ravine and Ch'angdo which now belongs to North Korea, went up the Tanballyŏng Ridge, and entered Inner Diamond Mountain. This route is virtually the same as that of the eight places known for their scenic beauty that run from Seoul to Diamond Mountain, which Chŏng Ch'ŏl praised in his Excursion in the East. The author wrote this book so that he could be with the people who have been his companions on trips to the Mintongsun villages ever since his first visit to Ch'ŏrwŏn as a young adult.

Keywords: Chŏngyŏn; Diamond Mountain railway; North Korea
