Item description for Three Gorges of the Yangtze River (Odyssey Illustrated Guide) by Raynor Shaw...

The 3,965-mile-long Yangtze River, which flows from the barren snowfields of Tibet to the fertile delta near Shanghai, has been a main trade artery for 2,000 years. Shaw's richly illustrated guide captures the most spectacular section of this remarkable river, the famous Three Gorges region, which extends downstream for a distance of 120 miles through the Wushan Mountains from Baidicheng to the Nanjin Pass near Yichang. Surrounded by towering peaks and enclosed by precipitous cliffs, each gorge has its own distinctive and dramatic scenery, containing features that have long attracted both local and overseas visitors. The economic and social history of this section of the river is an equally compelling read. 70 color photos, 9 maps & diagrams.

Reviews - What do customers think about Three Gorges of the Yangtze River (Odyssey Illustrated Guide)?

Three Gorges... great info  Sep 9, 2009
Leaving in October for a trip up the Yantze River. This book has really helped me to understand and locate the cities I will be visiting. I don't like traveling to a new place and not know anything about the cities I will be visiting. This book goes into the background of the cities, the legends of the area. I am sure it is helping me to prepare for another wonderful trip. I travel a lot and find that learning about the area first makes the trip for more and more meaningful.
