1 Review

The Western world has become familiar with Tibet through the Buddhist teachings of emigre Lamas. With these tales about an outrageous popular "trickster", Uncle Tompa, we are introduced to another side of Tibet: a bawdy world of humor, and the, rough and tumble, everyday, secular life of the Tibetan people.
