User Summary: You are a young orphan living on a farm in Tang dynasty China. You must survive as nomadic raiders roam the rural areas.
Dtar's Thoughts:

I found this to be a good, realistic and potentially tragic historical adventure, especially suited to a young reader with an interest in Chinese history. References are made to political corruption, such as siphoning off funds that should be devoted to better protecting the people living in the border regions. Fairly advanced subject matter for a young reader.
