The most famous novel set on the Yangtze. Pulitzer Prize-winner Hersey writes with deceptive simplicity of an American engineer traveling on the Great River in search of a dam site. In this short, controlled novel, the river itself is as much of a character as the Chinese trackers who haul a traditional Yangtze junk up the river through rapids, floodwater and narrow gorges. Think of Hemingway on the Yangtze. It's a haunting, prophetic book that evokes a traditional way of life. 181 pages.
