Ultimately this independent woman influenced kings, presidents and the English speaking world with her moving tales of Asia.

It includes Candee’s complete 1924 tale of Asian adventure, supplemented by her first person account of the Titanic sinking, a bibliography, index and more than 100 antique illustrations.
For the first time in print, this edition also features Life’s Décor – The first original biography of Helen Churchill Candee’s life, by historian Randy Bryan Bigham.
