Nonfiction: a two-volume set that sensitively looks at the Boxer Rebellion - one volume from the side of Bao who leads the Chinese peasants and the other volume from Four-Girl (a.k.a. Vibiana) who tells the Christian’s side of the story.
This two-book set teaches: diversity; perspective; character and narrative voices - all around the Boxer Rebellion.
