History meets myth in this dramatic retelling of the story of Qu Yuan, celebrated poet-in-exile of ancient China. In Bouchard's tale the poet and a sea dragon, in the guise of a mermaid, develop a mutually inspiring friendship that impels them to sail away together, to the mistaken alarm of Qu Yuan's neighbours. The surprising climax illustrates the traditional Chinese origin of dragon boats, those ornately carved paddlecraft currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity in both the East and the West. Spectacularly illustrated, this book caps the popular Chinese Legends trilogy.
