Beyond the Moongate
True Stories of 1920's ChinaBook - 2013
Moongates dotted the landscapes of old China. Ancient Chinese architects had sculpted stone piled on sculpted stone to form round doorways, with the spiritual symbolism of the full moon. To step through one of these doorways was to step into a world of peace and happiness. And so it was in the 1920s that the Lee King family - father, mother and six children, aged ten months to seven years - travelled from their home in Canada, across to inland China. The story of the moongate tells of the two 'golden' years the family spent in a remote, unchanged village in south China.
