I was very lucky to meet Wang Shixiang in February 2008. Aged ninety three he is still very much clear headed and enthusiastic. We talked much about his love of falconry, pigeon whistles and crickets.
Wang has authored over fifty books and is a leading authority on many subjects, whilst I was in Beijing I was able to procure a few copies of his wonderful book " Beijing Pigeon Whistles". The book is in dual languages of Mandarin and English and profusely illustrated. If you are very lucky I might have a copy for sale, but they will go fast.
