Description
Wonderfully told and beautifully illustrated, this book is a journey back to a China that is magical and mysterious. Victoria Cass retells both popular and little-known stories of emperors and empresses, ghosts and spirits, warriors and maidens, set in otherworldly realms and landscapes potent with history. The stories are grouped by region, providing insight into how folklore and culture were shaped by China's natural geography, and illuminated with full-page and double-page color photos. Cass shows us where mortals, demons, and gods reside in the abandoned villas, vertiginous cliffs, nighttime pathways, serene canals, and shadowed temples of this ancient land.

"In her eloquent retelling of this evocative selection of Chinese myths and legends, Victoria Cass transports us into a marvelous, disturbing, and often magical realm.... Cass's excellent introduction, bibliography, and mini-biographies of the 17 specialist photographers whose work illustrates the book add to its appeal."ForeWord Magazine
