Some brief overview of book

Rising in the mountains of the Tibetan border, the Yangtze River, the symbolic heart of China pierces 3,900 miles of rugged country before debouching into the oily swells of the East China Sea. Connecting China's heartland cities with the volatile coastal giant, Shanghai, it has also historically connected China to the outside world through its nearly one thousand miles of navigable waters. To travel those waters is to travel back in history, to sense the soul of China, and Simon Winchester takes us along with him as he encounters the essence of China-its history and politics, its geography and climate as well as engage in its culture, and its people in remote and almost inaccessible places.

The River at the Center of the World A Journey Up the Yangtze, and Back in Chinese Time is travel writing at its best lively, informative, and thoroughly enchanting.
