Pearl Buck's translation of Outlaws of the Marsh, a Chinese historical novel that has been the backstory to more kung-fu flicks than any other source. It's a stirring tale of governmental corruption, high adventure, and lots and lots of arcane chop-socky moves as Our Band of Heroes, 108 in all, each with a specialty, attempt to figure out exactly a) what is wrong with the Imperial Army, b)who knew what when, and c) who's behind it all.

Not to be missed.
