Acclaimed travel-lecturer Dale Johnson presents a personal narrative on the world's most populated country, China, visiting a number of the country's well-known locations, both historical and modern, to reaffirm how rapidly China is rising. In Beijing, he visits the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and offers views of the Great Wall of China; in Harbin, we see a blend of industry and agriculture; then view the Three Gorges Dam in central China on the Yangtze River; a trip up the Li River takes us to the magnificent karst peaks of Guili; next we explore Ding Ling Tomb of the Wanli Emperor and the famous Wild Goose Pagoda, a Buddhist temple and retreat; we learn of the importance of jade and silk; then close seeing the mushrooming growth of construction in China's largest city, Shanghai.
