Boxers (Boxers & Saints, #1)
Really moving account of China's Boxer Rebellion from one of the peasant-warriors. Interesting how it showed the ways that colonialism/the spread of Christianity hurt many of the people in the countryside, and also the supernatural beliefs that strengthened the fighters. Be warned that the ending is tragic. I'm interested to read Saints, the companion book, as well as (eventually) some actual history of the rebellion.
