About the Book:

This is a short story of about 6100 words, a bit long so I have divided into two roughly equal parts. It's based on a true story that I have exercised a good deal of literary license. Why was Jedidiah Boley in China in his condition, and more important, how did he die?

About the Author:

For 20 years I taught Asian History and Culture at San Diego State University, and for five years worked in the travel and tour business. Quit all of that to go to full-time writing, though I continue to visit Asia regularly. I have completed two novels and eight short stories most of which take place in the Far East.

Author's Note:

I thought about turning this into a novella, and still might by giving more background on sailing China's Yangtze River, though that would be incidental to the main idea. Suffice it to say, a lot of interesting things happen out there, enough for a whole book of short stories.
