Bandit's Daughter: Kung Fu Girl in Ancient China

Simon Mason

Pushkin Children's Books

At the beginning of the 11th century, General Yang, guardian of the northern border, sent his son Zongbao to exterminate the bandit living in Dragon-Taming Wood. In the forest, Zongbao was surprised by the bandit's teenage daughter, Mu Guiying, a kung fu prodigy, who challenged him to unarmed combat. Her deal? If Zongbao won, she would lead him to her father's secret hideout. If she won, she would take him to her father as her prisoner. So began Mu's extraordinary story, which would end with a spectacular battle for the destiny of her country. Mu, now a general herself, is charged by the Emperor with resisting the formidable horsemen of the Great Liao, whose Heavenly Gates battle formation has never before been beaten. A new title in the True Adventures series - the astonishing true tale of an inspirational heroine.
