Boxers and Saints

by Gene Luen Yang. New York, NY: First Second, 2013  


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.
