Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. In 19th-century China, a young girl struggles to protect her family from the threat of bandits, famine, and an ideological conflict between her father and brother.
From the Back Cover: Legend of the Serpent
When villagers call Cassia and her brother, Foxfire, "the serpent's children", they mean it as an insult. But to Cassia it is an honor, for legend says that once a serpent sets her mind on something, she never gives up. And in a time when famine, drought, and violence mark her family's life, Cassia has nothing less than survival to fight for.
Their father is a revolutionary, determined to free China from invaders. Foxfire, certain he'll find a mountain of gold, flees to a faraway land. Cassia will need all of her strength and wisdom to keep her family together, and to prove that she is truly the serpent's child.
