  Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China  
 
by Jung Chang
 
 

If you only read one book about modern China …
This lengthy family saga, following the fortunes of three generations of Chinese women, is often harrowing, but is gripping to the final word. Covering the period from the end of the Ching Dynasty to the last days of Chairman Mao's rule, Wild Swans evokes the great changes that shook China during this period. If you only read one book about modern China, read Wild Swans.

The Origins of Chopsticks

Chopsticks have been dug from burial plots that are at least 3,200 years old. Some surmise that they evolved from a practice of using a wooden stick while cooking on an open fire to prod, stir or move food. It is fairly easy to imagine how a pair of sticks came to be used like tongs.
