T'ao Yuan Ming, a 4th century Chinese poet, wrote of 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 sifting through clues leading him to believe it actually exists, Mandarin-speaker Dean Barrett journeyed into China in search of this pastoral paradise; and neither travel literature nor the Middle Kingdom will ever be the same again. Humorous travel literature at its best.
