All the things you never knew, suddenly become clearer to you...
1.)Lady of Ch'iao Kuo was NOT Chinese but Hsien, a tribe that lived in the forests in what is now southern China.
2.)They had facial tattoos similar to those of the New Zealand Maori, Moko (the male one).
3.) They were at home in a forest which the Chinese deeply feared, and which the Chinese would later cut down, as they took over the south.

....Good book

good book . Shows a realistic view of her life . well something's are to hard to explain to a young child . Don't read unless you have a good understanding of the world .
