Synopsis: The terra cotta army is one of the greatest, and most famous, archaeological discoveries ever made. Over eight thousand life-size figures of warriors and horses were interred in the mausoleum of the first emperor of China—and each figure is individually carved, perhaps representing real members of the emperor's army.

Weaving together history and a first-hand account of his experience in China, John Man tells the fascinating story of how and why these astonishing figures were created in the third century BC. In doing so, he gives a vivid account of early China and the formation of its unique culture.

The Terra Cotta Army will be published in conjunction with the largest traveling exhibit of the Terra Cotta Army to the United States—and the first exhibit in America in over ten years.

About the Author: John Man is a historian and travel writer with a special interest in China and Mongolia. His several acclaimed books include Genghis Khan. He lives in the United Kingdom.
