1. Iron & Silk, Mark Salzman (1986). Before China was fully opened and before Peter Hessler wrote his insightful books on China, a young American martial arts student, Mark Salzman, went to live and travel in China. The result is a series of sketches about his experience. Salzman's experience is richer for his fluency in Mandarin. Bought used but can't remember where. Contains a book stamp of the previous owner, Nell P. K. from Ormand Beach, Florida.
