*The ONLY updated biography of Charlie Soong containing new facts and new information.* Charlie Soong has been called many things: a missionary, a businessman, a revolutionary, a pioneer of woman's education, and North Carolina's first international student. He was also the father of China's famous Soong sisters, including Madame Chiang Kai-shek. In turn, the story of Charlie Soong has captivated the imaginations of North Carolinians for over a century now, and has taken on almost legendary status in the state that did so much to shape and influence him in his formative years. It is these experiences, and the extraordinary story of Charlie Soong's triumph and tragedy after his move back to China that are chronicled here. It may have been fate, but it just as easily could have been Charlie's warm and ebullient personality that got him quickly into the good graces of influential North Carolinians who became convinced that Charlie would be an ideal missionary in China. When men like Durham tobacco magnate Julian S. Carr (namesake of the town of Carrboro) took it upon himself to sponsor Charlie and his education at Trinity College, it set in motion a chain of events that would radically impact the future of Charlie Soong. And when men like Sun Yat-sen, the leader of the Chinese Revolution, would later befriend Charlie in Shanghai, it would profoundly alter the course of Chinese history itself.The legend of Charlie Soong in North Carolina has almost outgrown the truth behind the man himself. Indeed, so many stories have been told about Charlie by so many different people in so many different settings that it has been hard to tell fact from fiction in recent years. "Charlie Soong: North Carolina's Link to the Fall of the Last Emperor of China" sheds new light on one of the most colorful and extraordinary individuals ever to grace the pages of North Carolina's long history.

From the Author:

Much in the way of myth and legend has developed over the course of the last century about Charlie Soong, especially in his beloved North Carolina. This book endeavors to separate fact from fiction in regards to his remarkable life. It is also hoped that it will help in the effort to acknowledge the contributions of Charlie Soong in regards to his important role in the Chinese Revolution of 1911, and in the effort to recognize him as a unique symbol of the special relationship between North Carolina and China that has existed for more than a century.

From the Back Cover:

Stories and rumors about a Chinese immigrant named "Charlie Soong" have circulated in North Carolina since the late nineteenth century. According to legend, Soong lived in North Carolina after supposedly arriving as a stowaway, only to move back to China to become a Bible-printing millionaire. In this new biography, author E.A. Haag separates fact from fiction in regard to Soong, considered one of the most influential figures in twentieth century China.
