Read full description of the books:
The mysterious and ancient city of Sanxingdui is famous for its astonishing bronze-casting technology. Villagers come from faraway lands to admire the bronze masks and trade for the highly prized bronze wares. However, Sanxingdui faces danger when its people hear rumors of a foreign invasion. The chief’s daughter, Min, and her newly initiated warrior brother, Wei, lead the villagers to flee their homeland. Where do they go? And what do they do with their sacred bronze masks and statues?
This unprecedented children’s story offers a glimpse into the lost civilization of Sanxingdui in Sichuan Province, China, over 3,000 years ago. In 1986, the epic discovery of the monumental bronzes in Sanxingdui was acknowledged as the “ninth wonder of the ancient world.” The artifacts unearthed are as old as the Pyramids of Egypt and reveal an advanced and civilized society in Sanxingdui. The ancient history of China is being rewritten as the ongoing excavation of Sanxingdui continues.
