Description
 
“I am a child with my hair yet cut across my forehead, but soon I will marry the king of far Khotan.” Flowing silk flies along behind a young Chinese princess as she lovingly says good-bye to the many splendors of her father’s kingdom. “Good-bye, pink peach petals. Good-bye, yellow moon.” At summer’s end, she must venture to an oasis far away in the dry, hot desert. But secretly, boldly, she’ll carry a little piece of her adored home with her. This book re-imagines the legend of how a gently defiant princess revealed to the world a secret the Chinese had guarded for two thousand years -- the secret of silk. Beautifully designed! Full-color illustrations. Reinforced binding.
