Review by Allison Martin

Water Buffalo Days is another wonderful children's book about a young boy's adventures growing up in the central highlands of rural Vietnam before the war, from the author of The Land I Lost. Inhis autobiographies, Huynh Quang Nhuong remembers his boyhood village life - the fears, dangers and quiet moments as a child. The tales of the villagers are evocative and memorable but even more remarkable are the adventures with the various animals that roam the village, river and nearby jungle. His chief charge, the water buffalo Tank, plays a central role in the book and will make a lasting impression on all readers - old and young.
