Today on the Novel Adventurers we're writing about cross cultural influences. I took a look back at a few crazy Christmases I spent crowd watching in China. While Christmas is a family affair for most Americans, in China people like to celebrate outside, almost like a street carnival.

One of my lifelong favorite poets is Canadian Robert Service, who wrote verse about the Gold Rush. Please visit the site and see the blog. Happy reading!
