Hi all,

I'm hoping that someone may have the knowledge I need.  My dad's wife is Chinese, and she was telling us about a book that had been translated into Chinese that she read when she was young and really loved.  From what she told us, I think it was White Fang by Jack London.  I'd like to get a copy of it in Chinese if possible for her, but I have no idea where to look to find one.  Does anyone know where to get Chinese translations of books?

I don't know if you can still use the information, but your request is an extremely hard one to gratify. I know because I've spent two years studying chinese, and when it comes to material outside of textbooks, it's very difficult. Your best bet, of course, is China, but you likely don't have the means to go there. So, if there is a chinatown nearby, you could always attempt to find a merchant or someone who could use their knowledge of the language to get a copy. If not, reach out your social feelers and find a friend who is traveling to china sometime soon and let them know your request.

Good luck!

Does Amazon have a Chinese site? I've ordered from their British and French sites before. Just go to the main site and they have links to all their other sites.
