An Expedition Along the Yangtze River
Join acclaimed China explorer How Man Wong on his epic ten-month expedition along the mighty Yangtze River. Inspired by an old Chinese proverb, 'When drinking water, think about the source,' he tracks the river from the industrial coastal cities to the high Tibetan Plateau, revealing for the first time some of China's most exotic cultural and geographic locations.
How Man Wong, described as a latter day Marco Polo, is an explorer/scholar specializing in China's remote regions. His work in China began in 1974 and since the 1980's has led dozens of expeditions including six for National Geographic Society.
Take a boat ride through the famous scenic Three Gorges or ride a yak across glacial waters on the Tibetan highlands - while the explorer narrates his story. Illustrated with over 400 beautiful photographs and 70 QuickTime movies.
Explore and experience an undiscovered China with an additional 400 captioned photographs in the Photo Gallery, some of which are published for the very first time.
