Description: London, Pickering & Inglis. 1965, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 128 pp, 7 3/8" H. Colour frontispiece. "Communists had come and Chi-li had to flee for his life, and join the stream of refugees trying to reach Hong Kong. On his journey he meets up with Chang, a thief and a brigand, but Chang saves Chi-li from death and, becoming fond of him, thinks he will be able to make Chi-li do what he wants. But Chang is not aware Chi-li is a Christian, and is not only surprised but angry when he refuses to take part in wrongdoing. Full of adventure, suspense and excitement this story is ideal, and we rejoice when Chi-li finally reaches 'The House of the Good Shepherd', is re-united with his parents, and best of all Chang becomes interested in the Christian way of life."
