About this book

In 1936, Ruth Harkness, an American socialite, caused a sensation when she captured and brought back the first live giant panda to the United States. With her was Quentin Young, the 22-year-old Chinese-American who led the 1,500-mile expedition into the remote mountains of Sichuan rife with warlords and bandits. This book is the result of a friendship between Young and the author.
