Summary

When the first emperor of China falls under the influence of an evil prime minister out to abolish education, a wise scholar and his son flee for the mountains. During their time hiding in a secluded cave, the young boy discovers a site that contains a complete militia made of clay. Archers kneel with bows, and soldiers stand with attention. Cloaked with the finest garb and weaponry, the warriors resemble real-life soldiers. After making the startling discovery, the boy conjectures the reason for the clay army's creation. The mystery behind the terra-cotta army-what some consider the eighth wonder of the world-is unveiled in this educational children's story with ancient Chinese-inspired illustrations. A math lesson and a craft for making clay add to the learning experience.
