”The Legend of the Condor Heroes is a wuxia novel by Jin Yong (Louis Cha). It is the first part of the Condor Trilogy, but the English title is a mistranslation since both species of the condor, the Andean condor and Californian condor, are not native to China.
The story is set in the Song dynasty and at the beginning of the Jurchen-ruled Jin dynasty’s invasion of northern China. The first part of the novel revolves around the friendship of two men, Yang Tiexin and Guo Xiaotian, who became heroes in their own right as they fought the Jin invaders. The bond between the duo is so strong that they pledge to each other that their unborn children will become either sworn siblings (if both are of the same sex) or a married couple (if they are of opposite sexes).
The plot focuses on the trials and tribulations of their sons after Guo Xiaotian’s death and Yang Tiexin’s disappearance. Guo Xiaotian’s son, Guo Jing, grows up in Mongolia under the care of Genghis Khan."
