From the Publisher:

Through text and one hundred photographs, this captivating travelogue depicts today's paradoxical China--at once the most dynamic emerging marketplace in the world and curiously unchanged since the nineteenth century.

Review:

If the price tag seems high at first, consider this book's many color photos and rich detail: the photos are surprising in what seems another essay-type paperback travel book at first glance. In 1894 one George Morrison produced an international bestseller based on his lone journey across wild China: McDonald here retraces his steps in 1994, traversing many backroads and obscure paths. -- Midwest Book Review
