Books Picked Up in China and the Embassy

Islam in China by Mi Shoujiang and You Jia (it was much, much cheaper in China)

China's Ethnic Minorities (paints a rather rosy picture)

The Silk Road: Xi'an to Kashgar by Judy Bonavia (also much cheaper in China)

Old Xi'an: Evening Glow of an Imperial City by Jia Pingao

The Tea Road: China and Russia Meet Across the Steppe by Martha Avery (she also wrote Women of Mongolia that I mentioned about a year ago- this book was $4.00 in China)

If anyone knows anything about any of these last three, I'd like to hear it. I picked these up at the embassy and know nothing about them. Hopefully they're worthwhile.

Shooting the Boh: A Women's Voyage Down the Wildest River in Borneo by Tracy Johnston

The River Midnight by Lilian Nattel

Looking for History: Dispatches from Latin America by Alma Guillermoprieto
