Book Description Rucksack Readers, United Kingdom, 2003. Spiral bound. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Great Wall of China is the largest construction on earth, yet myths about it are more widely known than facts. The best way to appreciate the Great Wall is to explore it on foot. This richly illustrated book focuses on especially rewarding parts of the Ming Dynasty Wall (1368-1644).
