About this book

The Guideways, completed in the first centuries BC, contain descriptions of hundreds of fantastic creatures along with minerals, flora and medicine. Strassberg brings it to life by weaving in other texts and recent archaeological finds. The result is an extraordinary guide to the imaginative life of early China.
