The legendary account of 108 "Stars from
Heaven" who, faced with a corrupt bureaucracy, flee to Liangshan
Marsh, from a fortress there thwarting minions of the evil regime
while continuing to serve the emperor. In its mix of politics,
military tactics, action, martial arts, magic, and even the bawdy (the
chapters on Wu Song laying the groundwork for Jin Ping Mei), this
beloved novel is an unsurpassed classic in any language.
This is the English translation of the classic Chinese literary work, "Water Margin". This copy is masterfully translated by Sidney Shapiro. The story is amazingly interesting. This is one book that I would recommend to anyone.
