Reviews - What do our customers think?
Faith Sims review  Aug 22, 2008
A tiny country takes on the largest county in the world. The tiny country tries to control every person (even the foreigners) in the largest country in the world. The big country has a faction who resists the little country's attempt at occupation. Inside that big picture is a "camera" focused on one man, a Kay Pate, who is caught with his young family in that time of injustice. The "photographer", Richard Smith, has used Mr. Pate's own diary to show his readers the struggles and triumph of Kay Pate and the two men who dared the escape from China with him.

Each page was interesting and held me wanting to learn more as I read it. There was not a dull spot in the whole book, and nothing that I found redundant or anticlimactic. Mr. Smith challenged me as a reader-I did not feel "written down" to. I appreciated his discussion of how kind, hospitable people can react to being given military power over other people.

The sweetness of the book was the real story. Mr. Pate's movement toward God and eventual reliance on God was a great confirmation, to any man, that spirituality is not something set aside for women and children. There was no guarantee that Mr. Pate would not have been tortured or murdered if he had been caught along the way; yet God affirmed Mr. Pate in his dangerous run to freedom.

My congratulations to Richard Smith for taking on what must have been an excellent challenge. To provide such vivid word pictures of the lay of the land, never having been there himself, was admirable. The desire to go there and see China is stronger in me than it has ever been, thanks to his talent.

One of the lasting gifts of his book is my expectation to read more of them. Thank you, Richard Smith,

Exciting History Lesson  Aug 10, 2006
Judy Basehore Philo, CA.
Out of China is a history lesson full of excitement. You see China and Japan at the beginning of World war II with details of the China Incident and the lives of Chaing Kai-shek and Mao Zedong. K. M. Pate's journal tells how he and two buddies managed to escape from Lunghwa Concentration Camp in Shanghai, then it is one harrowing event after another for five months as phenominal luck gets them Out of China. The map in the book should have been twice as big.
Truth Stranger than Fiction  Dec 30, 2005
The escape from a Japanese prison camp during World War II was
amazing in itself. Trekking 1400 miles across China with
constant harrowing near detections by the Japanese soldiers was
so incredible. Intersperced within the story are interesting,
little known facts about World War II in general, like the U.S.
hospital base high in the mountains of China not easily accessible by anyone. Be sure to have a map of China handy to
make this an even more interesting read.
