About this book

Capturing a sense of the daily life, traditions, and history of the people who live along the Upper Yangtze's Three Gorges area. Cheetham explores what will happen to the way of life on the Yangtze for more than one million people who will be displaced once the dam project is complete and over a dozen large cities, and 1,500 villages are submerged in 350 feet of water.
