I bought this book for our daughter, whom we adopted from Vietnam, so that when she grew up she could get sense of her country of origin, but since she is still very little I decided to read it myself, and I am enjoying it very much. There is much in the book that gives you a sense of life in Vietnam and of the Vietnamese people's thought, even though the tales are in an age far removed from the present and the morale of the stories apply to all, as in all fairy tales. I will enjoy reading it again to my daughter when she is a little older.

Format: Paperback
Buddhist monk, Zen master, human rights activist, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh takes the reader to Vietnam's age of myths and folklore in The Dragon Prince: Stories and Legends from Vietnam. The fifteen stories within include traditional and historical legends as well as brand new folktales inspires by Vietnam's recent past. Key themes within the tales extol the virtues of cooperation, reconciliation, mindfulness, and the importance of understanding that all beings are truly interconnected. A handful of simple, stylized black-and-white illustrations enhance this wonderful collection, highly recommended especially for community library collections and non-specialist general readers with an interest in mythology and folklore from around the world.

I bought this for friends of mine - a young Vietnamese couple with two children. The woman was thrilled when she saw it. The book was in perfect condition, and when my friends saw it, she was so excited. She recognized the author as a famous writer (or person) in Vietnam.

I am a Vietnamese American, but I know very little about my ethnic heritage. I bought this book with the intention of learning about my ancestral culture, and was pleased with the outcome. This book is written by an actual Vietnamese person (a Buhddist monk, in fact), so I believe it to be accurate. The stories are very interesting and informative while maintaining an entertaining writing style. Now I have greater knowledge of Vietnamese culture and am even prouder of being Vietnamese. Regardless of your ethnicity, though, I firmly believe that this is a great book for anyone interested in Vietnam. Truthfully, it is a short book, but it is well worth the money. This book has the high recomendation of a Vietnamese person.
