In 1901, then 22-year-old Ruth Isabel Strong went with her older married sister on a six-month journey to tour China and Japan. Her diary of that adventure was later edited by her son, Stewart McMillan and this book resulted. A delightful glimpse into a young girl's experience at the turn of the 20th century. You can practically feel the "rainy daisy" skirts and leg-of-mutton sleeves!
