    The fifth book in the cultural series Asia's Lost Legends, this is a wonderful Cambodian tale about kindness, generosity and forgiveness.

    Kompheak was born with no legs. His father, who was ashamed of the childā€™s deformity, ordered that the baby be sent down the river. But as fate would have it, the baby is found and raised by a wise man who teaches the child the ways of healing. In time, Kompheak becomes a famous medicine boy. He travels far and wide in a wheelchair built especially for him. But one day Kompheak meets a dying old man with a familiar face, and his life changes forever.
