产品描述

One of the most enduring and popular folk legends of China has been the story of Lord Bao and his seven heroes and five gallants, whose exploits were sung of in ballads, opera and song for over a thousand years.

The tales have now been translated into English for the first time. The central hero is Lord Bao, who rises from humble beginnings to high office at the imperial court, gathering around him a group of Robin Hood-type men to fight crime and corruption.

The seven heroes of the imperial court form a musketeer-like relationship – all for one and for all – with the five gallants, and roam around rescuing maidens in distress, succoring the old and weak, using their exceptional fighting talents to kill evil-doers. Corrupt officials are brought before Lord Bao who deals out justice without fear or favour.
