Oracle Bones : A Journey Between China and the West Paperback



Peter Hessler's previous book River Town was a prize-winning, poignant and deeply compelling portrait of China.

Now, in Oracle Bones, Hessler returns to the country, excavating its long history and immersing himself in the lives of young Chinese as they migrate from the traditional Chinese countryside to the booming ever-changing cities and try to cope with their society's modern transformation.
