Synopsis

TREASURES OF CHINA is a stunning photographic journey through more than 360 of China's natural and cultural treasures. Originally published in May 1989, it has been totally revised and updated to reflect the China of today. Rather than focusing on the best-known landmarks, the editors of Reader's Digest have hand-picked special places that are notable for their particular significance in Chinese history. Anecdotal text and captions illuminate over 400 glorious color photographs and 11 newly commissioned satellite maps that explain not just the history of each location but also ancient folklore and legend as well.
