With unique illustrations based on classical Chinese painting, this multicultural children's story tells a classic folktale that children will love. Long ago, in a far-off land, two tribes shared a common legend — they believed the mountains between them were the home of nine terrible and terrifying dragons. For generations, fear of the dragons kept the two tribes apart, until a catastrophic drought forced them into the mountains in search of food. Nine Dragons tells the story of how the two tribes prepared to go to war over their dwindling resources, and how the oldest and wisest of the nine dragons convinced the others that they had to stop the battle before it started. Based on themes from Asian folklore, and taking place in a mythical Asian setting, Nine Dragons is an inspirational tale about overcoming mistrust and misunderstanding to achieve peace. The vibrant full-color illustrations, along with the timeless story, will appeal to children and their parents.

Harry Bosch is alone, without backup - and this time the case is personal. From the No. 1 bestselling author of The Lincoln Lawyer. The shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man's death was no ordinary hold-up. Homing in on clues disregarded by the cops on the scene, Harry builds a picture of corruption and intimidation, with the local triads at the heart of it. But as he tries to build a case and breach the impenetrable wall of silence in the local community, he finds he is taking a dragon by the tail - a dragon whose talons reach well beyond LA, and even the States. Suddenly the most precious thing in Harry's life is under threat, and he will need to leave the familiarity of his home turf, alone and without backup, if he is going to stop his worst nightmare from happening.

The River of Nine Dragons (Song Cuu Long) is the name given to the nine "tails" or distributaries of the Mekong River that flow through the thick, verdant, watery world of the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam and Cambodia. The first of these to break away from the Mekong is the Bassac, starting in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh and making up one of the star of four converging waterways upon which Phnom Penh sits. Jack Logan, a naïve country boy from North Carolina, joins the Army with his cousin Joseph and becomes a U.S. Army Ranger. The Vietnam War is about to change his life forever. Like so many warriors of the past, he has learned to love the effects of war, the adrenaline rush, and the heat of battle. He rediscovered a love that he thought he lost along the way, while discovering a new love in the process. Now he's torn between the love of war and the love for two women. Who will he choose, the War, Rana or Maya?

The Legend of the Two Wolves An elder Lamanite was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves." "One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." "The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith." "The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too." The children thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Lamanite simply replied, "The one you feed." - Anonymous

It's the year 1906. Rumours abound that a deadly plot is hatching - not in the fog-ridden back-alleys of London's Limehouse district or the sinister Devon moors of the Hound of the Baskervilles but in faraway Peking. Holmes's task - discover whether such a plot exists and if so, foil it. But are the assassins targeting the young and progressive Ch'ing Emperor or his imperious aunt, the fearsome Empress Dowager Cixi? The murder of either could spark a civil war. The fate of China and the interests of Britain's vast Empire in the Orient could be at stake. Holmes and Watson take up the mission with their customary confidence – until they find they are no longer in the familiar landscapes of Edwardian England. Instead, they tumble into the Alice In Wonderland world of the Forbidden City.

Most accounts of contemporary Vietnam take the retrospective approach: veterans or correspondents return for the first time since the war and compare what they see today with memories of combat tours. They dwell on their own past history, telling us little of this ancient country and its people today. The objective of this book, however, is to take a much different look at Vietnam, to examine the nation more as a modern entity than as a chapter of American military history, to provide a vehicle for mutual understanding. What, indeed, is Vietnam today, this nation of roughly seventy million people, most of them ethnic Viets, but with a significant number of hilltribe minorities, among them the Black Thai, White Thai, Meo, Muong, and Hmong of the Northern Highlands? As the many photographs in this book so beautifully show, this small country covers an incredibly diverse landscape, ranging from tropical beaches and mangrove swamps to picture-postcard rice paddies and impenetrable rainforest. With one of Asia's least developed economies - yet with a historic architecture that rivals any in the East - Vietnam today is once again under intense foreign scrutiny, by entrepreneurs from Japan, Europe, and, lately, America. A nation of contradictions, Vietnam is a Communist state with a government under rising pressure to reform both its economic and basic human rights policy. In chapters organized geographically, beginning in Hanoi, working south toward Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), and ending in the Mekong Delta, the author and the photographer explore the country through firsthand encounters with Vietnamese of every sort, showing Vietnam in a 1990s context - the culture, the geography, the resources, the landscapes, and the people. They provide a perfect introduction for the traveler to a country now experiencing a resurgence of tourist and business interest.
