"There is a great deal more than the romance, however; there is a refreshing group of real people, there is an interesting picture of one small angle of Occidental life in the Orient, there is a great deal about horses and training ponies and racing. It's not great literature. It is not a profound psychological study. It is not an important slant on China. But it is a good yarn. . ."
