"A Chinese Bestiary "presents a fascinating pageant of mythical creatures from a unique and enduring cosmography written in ancient China. The "Guideways through Mountains and Seas, "compiled between the fourth and first centuries b.c.e., contains descriptions of hundreds of fantastic denizens of mountains, rivers, islands, and seas, along with minerals, flora, and medicine. The text also represents a wide range of beliefs held by the ancient Chinese. Richard Strassberg brings the "Guideways "to life for modern readers by weaving together translations from the work itself with information from other texts and recent archaeological finds to create a lavishly illustrated guide to the imaginative world of early China.
