For a young boy growing up in the hills of Central Vietnam, the days were full of adventure and excitement. Nhuong’s companion was Tank, the family water buffalo. Tank was extraordinary. He was fierce and fought off tigers and wild hogs that threatened the village. He was intelligent and learned quickly how to lead the other buffaloes. He was strong and could plow the rice fields all day long and not get tired. He was gentle and adopted a lonely puppy. He was Nhuong’s best friend.Now a grown man, Nhuong gives readers a glimpse of how he and Tank together faced the dangers of life in the Vietnamese jungle that was their home.
