Awash with superstition and folklore, the Yangtze river has been an inspiration for more than a thousand years to those who have lived beside it or sailed along it. This new collection contains fifty-four passages about the Yangtze River dating from the Tang dynasty to the present day and spanning thirteen centuries. The pieces are taken from novels, biographies, letters, diaries, poems, and short stories, and range from the words of early Chinese poet-officials to the observations of contemporary travel writers such as Colin Thubron and Paul Theroux.
