A Heavenly Bounce.
Long before Yao. Before Jordan. Before Bird, Wilt or Cousy. Before the CBA or the NBA. Well before Mao or Dr. Sun rose to prominence even, it had already taken root. Rapidly gaining in popularity, winning converts everywhere, and spreading across the vast reaches of a giant yet crumbling empire.
China’s enduring, ever growing love affair with basketball first began with a little help from above. And from overseas.
An adventure saga filled with heartbreak, temptations, dangers, selfless mission, and delayed true romance--unlike any other story you’ve ever read: Game for the Middle Kingdom.

Great historical adventure novel about the introduction of basketball into China in late 1800s and early 1900s. Unique plot and a love story, to boot.
