Description


This companion to the best-selling Once Upon a Time in Africa brings together stories that reflect the many cultures and peoples of Asia, from behemoth China to small Bangladesh and newly independent East Timor. While the Philippines is primarily Christian, in most Asian countries Christians form but a small percentage of the population. Asian Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Confucianists, and others have much to teach Westerners. Asia's myths, legends, and stories of real people today demonstrate the values of harmony and the wisdom of respecting others.
