Embracing the Dragon: A woman's journey along the Great wall of China

Author(s): Polly Greeks

NZ Biography

When reporter Polly Greeks interviews a man whose goal is to walk the entire length of the Great Wall of China, she is so inspired she throws in her job - and joins him. Instant attraction turns Polly Greeks and Nathan Gray into lovers, and together they cover 500 kilometres of the Great Wall, including many of its most remote and dangerous sections. In Embracing the Dragon, Greeks vividly recounts her remarkable journey - over jagged mountain passes, into villages which have never seen a European woman and through a blizzard that nearly claims her life. She also traces her increasingly tempestuous relationship with her lover - and with the Wall itself. Embracing the Dragon is a must-read for those who thrive on adventure - or only dream of it - and for all who are captivated by the mystery, mythology and crumbling might of world's greatest man-made structure. "It takes courage to tell a story like this." Jane Tolerton
