All six were drawn by T. Allorn. Each had a different engraver: F. F. Walker, S. Bradshaw, J. Sand, W. H. Capone, J. B. Allen, H. Adler, in that order down from top. (I linked all the pictures to my website and uploaded bigger images of pictures.)

In my book A Blue Moon in China, there are 18 black and white photographs I took while there; an index; and recommended reading, movies, and music from the book lists. I hand-drew the map. Library Journal‘s verdict was that it’s a “nice addition to women’s studies readings as it chronicles the kind of travel undertaken with a tattered map and the recommendations of students met on trains.” Feel free to contact me: elizabeth@elizabethpilar.com  My website has lots of pictures: elizabethpilar.com If you want to read my story, I’d love for you to order it from your local bookstore and ask your library to add it to their collection. $18.99 softcover ISBN: 978-0-9904251-9-9
