If a search for Isaan stories at Amazon isn’t what you had in mind — maybe you don’t like to read, or at least don’t care to spend any money on books — then try the visual approach and see what comes up by using the term in a search at YouTube.
The Web search engines are of course another option, but expect the results to be piecemeal. The simple fact is that there are no websites specializing in stories about the Isaan, Thailand’s Northeast. At least, there are none that are productive. The stories are infrequently published, and/or the website will have been inactive for quite some while.
Forums are also an option, if you are willing to search for members’ accounts and anecdotes.
Here are some of the wildly varying results of a Web search I have done in a July 27, 2013, post edit — you may find at least one selection to be of interest:

Thus, I was slowly enamoured by the elaborate stories on what Isaan food is, the origin of the humble cuisine incorporating spiced and savoury dishes, served with sticky rice and more often than not, more greens than meats.

I had dreamt about living abroad for so long, even pictured myself beachside or on an island somewhere, but never did coming here, to what the locals call Isaan, cross my mind. The guidebooks don’t say much about this large corner of Thailand except that there isn’t much to see. Maybe … I was meant to move to Isaan. *This is an excerpt from my soon-to-be-finished book, “The People We Meet.” You can find more stories like this on my blog, MissAdventure Travel.
