The Dragon From Guangzhou

Summary

During the Qing Dynasty in 1801, pirates kidnapped Mógū from a floating brothel off the shore of Guangzhou. So began one of the most notorious adventurers to take on the waters of South China. Mógū's rough start as a discarded daughter raised by nuns worsened after puberty when she was sold to work on a flower boat. Shrewd and determined to come out on top of each bad situation, Mógū prospers from a golden opportunity with the pirates who kidnap her. Quickly adapting to sword fighting and collecting riches, she shows Zheng Yi and Po Tsai more lucrative ways to live. Over miles of open ocean, plundering Portuguese and British fleets, through love and loss, Mógū, now known as Ching Shih, rises to each challenge with surprising grit. Negotiating amnesty for her band of outlaws, she seeks a place of her own for peace and happiness. In her best book yet, D.W. Plato weaves an unforgettable tale of how one woman's strength leaves us inspired and thinking long after turning the last page.
