Secrets of the Terra-Cotta Soldier

Author: Ying Compestine Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2014

In this historical novel, ian action-packed adventure and coming-of-age story that finely weaves fact and fiction, thirteen-year-old Ming lives in a small village in Maoist China in the 1970s. His father heads an archaeological team in search of Emperor Qin's tomb and the life-size terra-cotta household and army created to serve and protect the emperor in the afterlife. Through the stories of a terra-cotta soldier who has survived through the centuries, Ming learns the history of Emperor Qin, known both for building the Great Wall of China and for burying scholars alive and how and why the terra-cotta soldiers came to be. The book is illustrated with photographs of communist Chinese village life in the 1970s, the Great Wall and, of course, the excavated tomb with its many terra-cotta soldiers.
