About this book

Expressive photographic documentary of this magnificent river, which illustrates in very real terms the interdependancy of the river and the people it feeds. As other books, most notably Barber's Damning the Three Gorges have shown, the plans to dam vast sections of the river are highly controversial. This book ably demonstrates that though these developments will bring wealth to a few, disastrous consequences will be felt by many more.
