Synopsis: Suitable for children of ages 7 to 14 years, this title includes photographs that capture the beauty of China's landscape. It discusses China's economy and the reforms that have happened and the status of Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Taken from Chapter 2: A land of many variations Flood waters: friend or foe? Rivers are a source of life. Their waters provide riverside communities with fish, and their silk fertilizes the areas of land close to the water. For centuries the great rivers of China flooded the countryside around them. These flood waters left behind rich soil carried down from the higher lands. Over time these areas have become huge, flat, fertile basins. The Yellow River basin, for example, is the most important flat land in China's northeast. The soil in this area is formed from fine, wind-blown yellow-gray dust from the Gobu Desert. The land is fertile and holds moisture well. It is ideal for agriculture. As well as being a source of life, rivers can also be a source of disaster. The Chinese call the Yellow River "China's Sorrow. " In the past three thousand years it has overflowed more than 1500 times, causing much damage and costing many lives. To control floods, the Chinese have built high banks of earth, called dikes, along the edges of their rivers.
