Two of Prince Valiant's children, Arn and Karen, have accompanied Giovanni (Vanni) to Cathay in search of his long-lost father. Unaware that Prince Valiant, Gawain, and Yuan Chen are also in Cathay, in search of the fabled Prester John, the three young people stumble upon the tomb of the great Emperor Ch'in Shih Huang-Ti, filled with thousands of full-sized terracotta soldiers and horses.
