Dragon Prince, $15.26
"Myth, anthropology, ancient history, the simple joys of peace, and the sorrows of war can all be found in The Dragon Prince. Savor the tastes, fragrances, sights and sounds of an older, distant world, a world that can delight and inspire. —Mobi Warren
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.
For people of all ages and traditions.

"These tales provide the storyteller's old magic. As easily read as fairy tales, the stories focus on children whose plights become occasions of spiritual transcendence. —Library Journal
"Like the depth that comes with mindful breathing, Thich Nhat Hanh's restrained prose plumbs both visible and invisible worlds with skill and ease. These are brilliant, powerful—verging on cathartic stories—infused with penetrating wisdom and united by inner awakening to the sacredness of all life. They open the heart of understanding." — East/West Magazine
"The interconnectedness of all beings is the theme that binds together this fascinating group of short stories by a master storyteller...a tapestry that portrays the spirit of hope in the midst of terrible suffering that has been the history of many of the Vietnamese people for the last three decades." —Fellowship Magazine
