Tales of Uncle Tompa: the legendary rascal of Tibet
The Western world has become familiar with Tibet through the Buddhist teachings of émigré Lamas. With these tales of an outrageous popular rogue, Uncle Tompa (who manages to embody a spirit of popular wisdom despite his roguishness), 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. Each story is charmingly illustrated with line drawings in a style derived from traditional Tibetan drawing.
