In these fifteen stories of adventure, love, betrayal, and self-realization, Thich Nhat Hanh transports the reader to old Vietnam. This anthology contains traditional and historical legends as well as some new folk tales inspired by Vietnam's more recent past. The stories subtly and gently invoke 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.
"Myth, anthropology, ancient history, the simple joys of peace, and the sorrows of war can all be found in the Dragon Prince. Savour the tastes, fragrances, sights and sounds of an older, distant world, a world that can delight and inspire." Mobi Warren, translator.
