China & the Yangtze

China & the Yangtze

To get a feel for both urban and rural China, many travelers tour the country via the Yangtze River, embarking from Shanghai and traveling through the Three Gorges Dam before continuing on by plane to Xian and Beijing. We’ve got all the best books and maps for this particular journey, including a beautiful full-color map guide of the river, Simon Winchester’s The River at the Center of the World and the enduring favorite Wild Swans, a tale of three generations that reveals the modern history of China.
