Based on the description of this book, I really want to read it. And then I saw a review that my friend Rick shared here on Goodreads, and his review is so great that I really hope I win a First Reads copy of this book!!!
I'm fascinated by east/west relations, especially during the time period covered in the book (late 19th century.) There was (and still is) so much for the east and west to learn from each other, and I just find it fascinating that a group of Chinese boys were sent to schools in America (in New England) to learn what they could about America and the American Education system, which was so incredibly different from anything they were used to. I'm really looking forward to reading this!!!
