Finding Them Gone: Limited Edition
Visiting China's Poets of the Past
Bill Porter (aka Red Pine)

Signed numbered edition. Edition size limited to 100 copies. Signed in full by Bill Porter. (Note: Bill Porter is also called "Red Pine," and while the trade edition of this book uses both names on the cover, the signature on the limited edition just reads "Bill Porter.") Smythe-sewn binding, full leather covers, sewn-in silk bookmark, colored map endpapers. Title blind-stamped on front cover.

[Note:  The signature that appears at the base of the cover is for illustration purposes only. In the actual book, the signature appears on the title page.]


Combining travelogue, translations, history, and personal stories, this intimate and fast-paced tour of modern China celebrates inspirational landscapes and presents new translations of classical poems. Illustrated with over one hundred photographs and two hundred classical poems, many of which have never before appeared in English translation, Finding Them Gone celebrates the love of travel and an irrepressible exuberance for poetry.

"In the travel writing that has made him so popular in China, Porter's tone is not reverential but explanatory, and filled with luminous asides." — The New York Review of Books

"Bill Porter has been one of the most prolific translators of Chinese texts, while also developing into a travel writer with a cult following." — The New York Times

"Red Pine's succinct and informative notes for each poem are core samples of the cultural, political, and literary history of China." — Asian Reporter

"Red Pine's out-of-the-mainstream work is canny and clearheaded, and it has immeasurably enhanced Zen/Taoist literature and practice." — Kyoto Journal
