THE LADY AND THE PANDA The True Adventures of the First American Explorer to Bring Back China's Most Exotic Animal

by | Read by Jennifer Van Dyck

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Ruth Harkness was the toast of New York in the 1930s. Her fateful decision to go from designing dresses to embracing her late husband's dream of being the first to capture a Giant Panda paved the way for the most incredible adventure of her lifetime. She would be successful, but it would cost her nearly everything she had. It was all worth it though when she returned to the United States with a baby panda named Su Lin in her arms. Jennifer Van Dyck shares Harkness's stories of daring, romance, treachery, and drama in a robust and captivating way. Van Dyck's audio performance makes this exciting adventure tale unforgettable.
