An exquisitely realized account of one man's pilgrimage in China's forbidden past. For Fergus Bordewich, entering the labyrinth that is China and finding vestiges of a rapidly vanishing world was the challenge of a lifetime, and his eye-opening revelations offer a China to tantalize the eye and the imagination.
