"1862. On an ordinary day in Mormon Utah, Asie Taylor is swept away by a flash flood. Under the raging waters he hears mysterious and celestial music. He is surprised to regain consciousness at all, and astonished to wake up in the arms of an Asian woman. Have I died? Have I been transported to China? Soon he realizes his old life has been swept utterly away, and he must go exploring in this strange new world." "Asie journeys with unlikely companions. Sun Moon is a Tibetan Buddhist nun, abducted and brought to the United States for purposes of prostitution. Sir Richard Burton is the famous British explorer of Africa, an addict and a madman." "The new friends go adventuring in a world that is an exhilarating fusion of fiction, reality, and historical characters: As they dash from Salt Lake City across the deserts and mountains to the mining camps of the Comstock Lode and to California, Brigham Young protects them, Samuel Clemens befriends them, and the Destroying Angel of the Mormon Church, Porter Rockwell, does his best to kill them." "On his great journey, Asie seeks to discover why he was named the Rock Child, what it means to be a man of color in America, what spiritual path will suit him, who his people are, and how to find his true home."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
