"I was born on the central highlands of Vietnam. I always planned to return to my hamlet to live the rest of my life tehre. But war disrupted my dreams. The land I love was lost to me forever." But Huynh Quang Nhuong never lost the memories of his beautiful grandmother, a secret karate expert and vanquisher of bandits; dangerous crocodiles, horse snakes stronger than twenty men, killer wild hogs, two-hundred pound catfish; taming pythons with his favorite cousin, capturing wild chickens, fishing in the flooded rice fields; Tank, his gentle pet water buffalo and the fierce protector of the hamlet. Hyunh Quang Nhuong shares a little-known side of Vietnam and a boyhood filled with adventures
