Imagine waking up each day knowing you have reliable clues ot the lost city of Rome in China, but  not going to look.

David Harris set out from Australia to search for Li-jien, a city built by Romans in China 1300 years before Marco Polo entered Cathay.  he was alone, an amateur, he didn't speak the language or understand the Chinese way of doing things, and he was broke.  He was a western messenger claiming special knowledge about Chinese history and wanting to enter a closed military zone.  The Chinese bureaucracy mistrusted him.

Every step on the road to Li-jien surprised David Harris.  It led him to priceless friends, bizarre acquaintances, a woman he loves, a massacre of innocents, and the site that has not be declared a national monument.
