Old Path White Clouds by Thich Nhat Hanh

This is a nice read.  It's the Vietnamese monk’s retelling of the story of the Buddha. Done in his clear and concise writing, it moves along like a children's story book. Don't be misled. Thich Nhat Hanh brings a scholar’s discipline to the work, combining Chinese, Indian and Pali stories of the Buddha to create his own 20th century canon.
