THOUSAND PEAKS is the first comprehensive history in English of the rich tradition of Korean Zen, little known in the West but one of the few living links with the vigorous, ancient schools of Chinese Ch'an.  The author, a Buddhist scholar who was ordained as a monk for 11 years, presents  a wealth of historical material in an easy to read narrative.
