Including the classic Lady of Dreams, long out-of-print, here is a glimpse into the magical land of China, where the mind can escape when weary of the commonplace. Ten stories based upon Taoist and Buddhist philosophies take place against a background of Confucian ethics and cultural proprieties. Illustrated with delightful sketches, these fascinating tales include an account of a Bodhisattva taking on the form of a tiger to become a teacher of animals; and the story of an ambitious prince trying to gain possession of the stone of immortality.
