Don Quixote in China by Dean Barrett $16.65

Don Quixote in China by Dean Barrett

The Search For Peach Blossom Spring

T'ao Yuan Ming, a 4th century poet, wrote about a mysterious utopia in the remote mountains of China. In this utopia, generations of Chinese had isolated themselves from China's wars and rebellions and knew nothing of the outside world. Sixteen centuries later, after shifting through clues leading him to believe it actually exists, Dean Barrett journeyed into China in search of this pastoral paradise; and neither travel literature not the Middle Kingdom will ever be the same again.

"Dean Barrett's book is as unusual as it is thought-provoking and Mr. Barrett makes a fascinating modern-day Don Quixote as he doggedly searches for an elusive jewel of Chinese literature in the remote mountains and secluded valleys of China." Harold Stephens, author of Take China

"In Don Quixote in China, Dean Barrett sets out to explore 21st century China with an impossible goal; to find Peach Blossom Spring, an idyllic village described in the famous 4th century poem by T'ao Yuan Ming. Of course, the journey quickly turns into something else entirely, and the results are often moving and hilarious and tremendously entertaining. With his empathy, keen eye for the absurd and knowledge of China, Dean Barrett will entertain many, many readers." Mia Yun, author of House of the Winds
