Join us for an epic adventure as author Lewis McIntyre tells of the ancient travels of an eclectic group of Romans as they embark on the first Roman voyage to China – a seventeen thousand mile journey by sea and by land across three continents! The Eagle and the Dragon is McIntyre’s first full-length novel—historical fiction framed by two actual events: the Gan Ying expedition to Rome in 97 AD, and a Roman presence in the court of China in 166 AD. Between those two events would have been the first Roman mission to open a trade route to China. The actual story of that mission may be lost to us, but McIntyre offers an exciting fictional account where danger and adventure lurk at every turn!
