Great story! The information regarding the 15th and 16th century life in Vietnam is invaluable.

"Just as the moon lures the tides, the ocean tugs at a man's mind. Her waters can be many things at once: A healer and a killer, a canvas for contemplation, and an unforgiving workplace. For me, as for so many other young men through the ages, they offered an escape. Fresh out of school with a privileged but conventional education, I wanted to avoid the drudgery that seemed to loom ahead, and to go where there were no trodden paths." foreword
