About the Book

Trek For The Cross: Book 1

At the end of the sixteenth century, Troung Van Ba was a devoted agent to the secret No Name Society. He was given an assignment to obtain a precious icon, a jade cross, from a Chinese master craftsman in China. The cross was to be a uniting icon to unite Dai Viet and Annam. He knew his trek would be long, difficult, and perilous. There would be stations at some subhamlets along the way for food, rest, and updates on trail hardships, as well as the possibility of robbers.

At one such subhamlet, he was told the route had been changed because of a compromise and was informed he now had a sixteen-year-old guide, Tran Thi Mot, at which he rebelled. During the trek, there would be hardships in their travel, attacks by bandits and the No Name’s enemies, finding a true friend, delivering the cross, and of course, love.
