Ten Thousand Miles Without a Cloud

by Sun Shuyun
£14.99   paperback  Harper Perrenial (2004)

Ten Thousand Miles Without a Cloud by Sun Shuyun Sun Shuyun grew up in China during the Cultural Revoultion. Each night she listened to her grandmother's forbidden Buddhist prayers. Each day she lived the tenets of her Communist father, an army veteran. But as the Revolution failed even her father's hopes, Sun Shuyun began a search for her own beliefs. And to discover this, she - like the seventh century monk who went in search of true Buddhism - travelled from China along the Silk Road, through dangerous parts of Asia to India.
 
Moving, personal, visually brilliant, a journey through many landscapes, this bok gives us a vivid, fascinating insight into China and its history, a portrait of a remarkable woman and introduces us to a brilliant new writer.
