In China, there are many fantastic stories and legends about the dragon, and this collection contains 35 of the finest classical and modern examples. They include: 'The Rakshas & the Sea Market' and 'The Princess of the West Lake', both by the well-known Qing-dynasty writer, Pu Songling (1640-1715), that tell of the wonders of a dragon palace and of love between dragons and human beings; 'Tripod Lake & the Golden Lotus Flowers', the story of how the first Chinese ruler, Huang Di, was transported to fairyland on the back of a dragon; and 'The Looking-to-Mother Shoal', which tells of how human beings were transformed into dragons. Intriguing, entertaining tales that reflect the rich imagination and long history of the Chinese people.
