Description
The mighty Yangtze River flows through the heart of China, from its source on the high Tibetan Plateau to its mouth in the East China Sea. For over 2,000 years, the Yangtze has been China's most important transportation route. Twice in China's history, a city on the river has become the country's capital, and the Yangtze has played an important part in the growth of trade and industry. The Yangtze is home to some very rare wildlife -- Chinese dolphins swim in its waters, and giant pandas and snow leopards live beside its banks. The fertile Yangtze basin provides most of the food for China's rapidly growing population, but the river is now suffering from severe pollution. Recently, work began on a major dam across the Yangtze that will flood the famous Three Gorges, one of China's most spectacular landmarks. Book jacket.
