This book is excellent, though may not be for the average reader who does not have a strong interest in the subject. For me it was amazing, as I am a bookseller who wound up with an autograph book from the 1880's filled with photos of both Caucasian and Chinese kids, all from New England. After much research I narrowed its origin down to the Chinese Educational Mission, then sold it to a collector who is friends with the author.

I quickly bought the book and was able to get enough info from that

About the Chinese Educational Mission - nine of the students from China came to Exeter, NH to attend Phillips Exeter Academy. I was loaned this book by the PEA library and quite enjoyed it. The boys attended schools in the US to learn military technology, but instead mostly absorbed baseball. Their reintroduction in Chinese life after the recall was difficult, I'm glad they at least had a positive experience here in Exeter. How could they not?
