A visual travelogue through China’s under-reported environmental issues, by Sean Gallagher. Using beautiful images and engaging storytelling, Gallagher takes readers on a tour through China to places both familiar – like big megalopolises—and hidden—such as ancient cities wiped off the map by desertification.
Regular readers will recognize Gallagher’s work. He is a multiple Pulitzer Center-grantee and award-winning photojournalist.
The book captures the nomadic herders of Tibet and some of China’s iconic animals and landscapes, just as they may disappear forever. Four chapters—one each on wetlands, forests, desertification and the Tibetan Plateau—move you 10,000 miles through China, from delta to glacier. Multimedia features including maps and videos that allow readers to see China as Gallagher does—a country that is both beautiful and endangered.
Kirkus Reviews says "A sobering glimpse into China’s environmental degradation, matched with stirring photography of what’s threatened."
Great photos and eye-opening subject.
