I am not so a book reader (more a practiser), but after reading this book: Forest Recollections by Kamala Tiyavanich, it have answered some of my questions. The story's in this book are from the Thai forest Masters such as: Ajahn Mun, Ajahn Chah, Luangpu Waen, Ajahn Fun, Luangpu Lee, Luangta Maha Boowa and many others. It is a collection from different biography books, most are collected of their biography from Thai books. It is a fruitful collection about their path of practice, their difficulties, their obstacles, and how they overcame this. I recommend this book for those who is interested in the Thai Forest tradition, Dhutanga Kammaṭṭāna. Both Thai Forest sect of the Dhammayuttika Nikāya and Mahānikāya are discussed in this book, also both of their history. Here are some selected pages of the book:
