| Book Description: |
In the land of jade, everything seems possible and, in many ways, more vivid than life--the sky bluer, the air stronger with contrasts from poetry to violence. China: a vast land of orchids, Mongolian tigers, gardens, palaces, dazzling smiles, and raucous laughter, forests of camellias, birds of every color, wide seas of ponds filled with lotus petals. From the towns and villages, copper chimes and bronze bells ring out across the extraordinary landscapes.
