Overview

This is the first volume in the "Adventure Series". The author has written the series in such a way that they do not need to be read consecutively to be enjoyed as each volume is a story unto itself. However, once one has read the first volume the desire to follow the lives of the characters is intense indeed and the author at no time disappoints his readers by providing in each volume a complete surprise. The story of "The White Priest" takes place in a forgotten Buddhist monastery concealed "in the high drifting clouds" of Western Mongolia. Hidden amongst the trees is Altan Tobchi, the Golden Button, under the wise guidance of Master Chan, Lhalu the Tibetan. Here, Buddhist monks risked their own lives to shelter those fleeing the armies of both sides, the Russian and the Chinese. The author takes his reader into a totally different world, one of peace and tranquillity, one wherein Master Chan the Red Hatted Llama brings his warmth and wisdom, and then suddenly one of stark fear and drama, caught between the Russian military, the Kuomintang and Mao Tse Tung's troops. Two young men are brought together as friends, the White Priest, the Invited Spirit as they called him trained in the mysterious ways of the hand and Takuan, the Manchurian, who really was not a Manchurian at all. Both were victims of the time and their adventure begins, their lives strangely intertwined as they struggle to find safety and hope in a time and a world where no hope seems possible.
