Journey to the Sun
The Journey of Tei Fu Chen, The Legacy of Sunrider International
Robert A. Henrie
The sun is essential to all life, giving light, warmth, and hope. But it can also burn, as Dr. Tei Fu Chen has learned during a remarkable odyssey that began in his Asian homeland and has taken him to the pinnacle of success in the United States.
Dr. Chen and his wife, Dr. Oi-Lin Chen, came as frugal young medical school graduates, seeking the American Dream. They would find it, not by forsaking the traditions of their ancestors, but by combining the wisdom of the East with the scientific excellence of the West. The result is Sunrider International, now one of the world’s leading herbal nutritional and beauty product companies.
Journey to the Sun is a quintessential rags-to-riches story, with enough intrigue thrown in to create a suspenseful real-life mystery. But it is stunningly true. Tei Fu Chen’s path to success has been strewn with snares—some an outgrowth of his cultural heritage, and others from news media attacks, a sinister family conspiracy, and government abuse that turned justice on its ear.
Through it all, Dr. Chen never lost faith that truth and right would win in the end. Every reader who has also dared to chase a dream will cheer the ultimate triumphant journey of Tei Fu Chen.
