- A Young Girl's Journey to China

by Qian Gao

The result of an eleven-year-old girl's six-week journey to China, this book offers a unique perspective on a the differences and similarities of Chinese and American ways of life. Born in China and raised in Texas, Qian Gao initially experienced culture shock as she toured Hong Kong, Canton, Beijing, Shanghai and Fuzhou. But this shock was soon replaced with a deep understanding and profound joy of her native land. Ms. Gao's experiences in China brought her a level of sophistication uncharacteristic of her age. In her eyes China has many different aspects, good and bad, which are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Put together, they give us a good look at China through the eyes of a young Chinese-American.

Features 12 pages of photographs.
