Traveling across some of the toughest terrain in the world, the voyage took months to complete and cost Ruth everything she had. But when, almost miraculously, she returned from her journey with a baby panda named Su Lin in her arms, the story became an international sensation and made the front pages of newspapers around the world.
Drawing extensively on American and Chinese sources, including diaries, scores of interviews, and previously unseen intimate letters from Ruth Harkness, Vicki Constantine Croke has fashioned a captivating and richly textured narrative about a woman ahead of her time. Part Myrna Loy, part Jane Goodall, Ruth Harkness is a trailblazing figure. And her story makes for an unforgettable, deeply moving adventure.
"Croke has created an exciting tale, full of the color and spectacle of a lost, exotic era and place." (Booklist)
"Gripping....In dusting off this exciting tale, Constantine Croke returns Harkness to her rightful place in the top rank of zoological explorers." (Publishers Weekly)
