William Lindesay's yen for adventurous travel was inspired by his prep school headmaster, who thought an atlas should be at everyone's bedside. This fascination with maps led Lindesay to a degree in geography and geology from the University of Liverpool. Lindesay is now living in China, where he is working on another book.

Brief but nice overview of the subject Jul 20, 2005
Although this book is so brief that it can be read in a few minutes, it contains many marvellous color photographs of the chinese terracotta army and also gives interesting details regarding the first Chinese emperor and the nature of the armies of his times. One page is also devoted to the mystery of the Fourth Pit which was excavated but found empty of figures.
