Book Reveiw ~ The Land I Lost

The Land I Lost

 Huynh Quang Nhuong

Adventures of a boy in Vietnam
The land I love was lost to me forever.
These stories are my memories...

We enjoyed the adventures Huynh took us on. Action packed with encounters with tigers, wild hogs, deadly snakes and monkeys.
The boys enjoyed the stories about Tank, the authors pet water buffalo.
Tank does die. It is very sad on how this happens. We all cried reading about Tank, how he protected Huynh and later passed away.

A great book. A story for all ages and does a great job to open your eyes to other cultures.



  1. Sounds like a great book, Carla. Unfortunately, life is often sad - in this fallen world.

  2. This does sound like a good book. Not all stories in life have happy endings - at least not in this life! So thankful to have the hope of life after death!

  3. Sounds like a good book to tell my daughter about!
    thanks for the review.

  4. I have cryed before reading books. This sounds like a great book to learn about life in Vietnam
