The Wheat was Ripe and it was Sunday.
Patrick’s travel story, The Wheat was Ripe and it Was Sunday, compares and contrasts rural farm life in 1990’s China with early 20th century farm life on the Canadian prairies as depicted in Canadian author Sinclair Ross’ short story, Cornet at Night (from the anthology, The Lamp at Noon and Other Stories). This story was first posted on Patrick’s Ejournal blog during a rather epic 1998 bicycle crossing of China. A few years later, Traveler’s Tales published it in Travelers Tales China: True Stories.
