The Search for Ancient China

Exactly what I was looking for. I had purchased 2 small reproduction terracotta Chinese warriors at a local flowershop for a gift and simply wanted to know more about their history. When I found this little book, my curiosity was more than quenched. It provided me with a wealth of information, not only about my 2 little terracotta figurines, but about the emperor's whole army. I discovered that more than 6000 life-size terracotta warriors in battle formation were unearthed...and, these were were only a part of an enormous find. (The emperor's death was in 210 BC...the discovery was in the late 1970's). The book is packed with high quality color pictures and bring to life these ancient dynasties. Now, I would love to travel to those sites to see these discoveries in real life.Yes, I was very pleased with the book and have purchased 2 more of the warriors (for myself) and I am now purchasing a 2nd book to give along with the earlier warriors I purchased as a gift.
