About this item

In this eloquent and eye-opening adventure narrative, Colin Legerton and Jacob Rawson bring a hitherto unrevealed side of China to light. They journey to the farthest reaches of the country to meet the minority peoples who dwell there. They engage in a heated discussion of human rights with Daur and Ewenki village cadres; celebrate Muhammad’s birthday with Dongxiang hajjis who recount the government’s razing of their mosque; attend mass with Catholic Kinh fishermen at a church that has been forty years without a priest; hike around Lugu Lake to farm with the matrilineal Mosuo women; and descend into a dry riverbed to hunt for jade with Muslim Uyghur merchants. These encounters with China’s hidden minorities reveal their complex position in Chinese society and the social ramifications of inconsistent government policies—and some deep human truths as well.
