Jul 29, Don rated it it was ok. I read this as a follow up to Simon Winchester's, "The River at the Center of the World", since he recommended it at the end of his book. It's not a great book, hence the two stars, but I learned even more about the Yangtze, southwest China and adventurers. Apr 06, Jane Sunshine added it. Another great adventure story to read.
