Land of Yesterday, Land of Tomorrow: Discovering Chinese Central Asia
I had high hopes for this book, based on the title and the fact that it's a book for children on an ignored part of the world. But, I can't recommend it. The pictures were good, but no better than they are in lots of other Central Asia books. And the text was boring or inaccurate. Someday I will put a list together of good children's books to read about Central Asia.
