Farewell to Song Mountain (Paperback)
Veena Schlegel beguiles us with her lively narrative about living in a small village in rural China and the changes she experiences as the local villagers come to grips with China's era of unprecedented rapid growth. Despite embracing the changes coming their way, the locals maintain their mellow equilibrium and continue to support this foreigner in their midst with typical friendliness and generosity. Interwoven with the author's insights, a deeper search emerges as she explores the rich spiritual heritage of the area: Taoism, . Buddhism and Zen - her personal quest -- as well as travelling further afield to ancient spiritual sites such as Wutai Shan and Dunhuang.
