Lead Review

  • Book: Dragon House
  • Location: Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
  • Author: John Shors



It is clear that John Shors had done his research into the cultural sights, sounds and morays of Vietnam. IT is great for getting a feel for Vietnam, a wowswer! – Chet Soames –

A portion of the funds from Dragon House will be donated to The Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation which works with children in need throughout Vietnam, offering them services and support in getting back into school and breaking out of the cycle of poverty.
