In a summer dawn of 1583, after months of waiting on the island of Macao, Father Matteo Ricci, dressed in the robes of a Chinese holy man, set foot at last on the mainland of China.

Mission to Cathay is the story of the first Western Christian missionary to enter mainland China, a man whose creative methods broke down formerly impregnable cultural walls and foreshadowed the work of countless men and women who followed.

Father Ricci, his mission, and the people he touched, come alive in the rich tapestry of this masterful work of historical fiction.
