The narratives in this book are largely taken from Vietnamese myth books and then summarized and translated. When creating a summary, I checked to ensure that all the key motifs contained in the cited myth were preserved. The title for each account is given for easier reference. Information on the 30 groups whose myths are represented in this book appears in the Appendix.
This series of Vietnamese mythology is arranged by theme and organized into seven parts: creation, flood, god, hero, afterlife, fertility, and things and laces of cultural importance.
