Gleaned from an ancient oral tradition, these imaginative, colorful, and wisdom-filled stories will delight children and adults alike. This collection includes the Tibetan myth of creation; some of the famous Jataka tales, or stories of former lives of the Buddha; and the most popular of all the time-honored legends of Tibet, the great epic of King Gesar of Ling, the warrior who became a national hero.

Review: Tibetan Folk Tales

User Review  - Marsha Altman - Goodreads

Pretty good, I guess. I don't have a lot with which to compare in this area. There's some historical background, and there's pictures. The pictures are terrible as far as Tibetan traditional art goes, but at least they were there and added flavor to it. Read full review
