Book Review - The Emperor's River - Travels To The Heart Of A Resurgent China On The Chinese Grand Canal - Liam D'Arcy-Brown
A diary, and more, of a three month long journey undertaken by the author along China's Grand Canal.
A canal that pales our Grand Union Canal almost into insignificance! Travelling largely by huge cargo barges on the 1,400 year old canal that is navigable for 1,115 miles from Hangzhou, pronounced Hangchow, a sub-provincial city located in the Yangtze River Delta to Beijing, formally known as known as Peking, capital of the People's Republic of China in the north.
By hook or by crook Liam D'Arcy-Brown travelled where few if any modern westerners have ventured by this method.
Well written and interesting to those of us who enjoy adventure, canals and travel, giving us a glimpse of a China and ways of life unseen and unimagined by many.
