Excellent biography of the woman who brought the first Giant Panda to the United States. In the 1930's her husband, who was an explorer, journeyed to China on a quest to find a panda. Unfortunately, he died. Ruth Harkness, although totally untrained as an explorer, was determined to finish her husband's goal.
