Thich Nhat Hanh’s retelling of traditional and historical legends provides an introduction to the rich mythology of Vietnamese culture. His clear, contemplative spirit illuminates this collection of short stories as well as some new folktales inspired by Vietnam’s more recent past. Each story subtly and gently invokes some of Thich Nhat Hanh’s key themes: cooperation, reconciliation, mindfulness, and the profound realization of the interconnectedness of all beings. This contains previously published material from Taste of Earth and The Stone Boy.
