Before the Deluge: The Vanishing World of the Yangtzes Three Gorges by D. Chetham

After great controversy, the Chinese government began construction of the worlds largest dam in the Three Gorges section of the Yangtze River. In fall 2002, the river level will rise hundreds of feet, inundating almost a thousand villages and cities with water, and requiring the relocation of over a million people. As a guide and lecturer on the Yang-tze, Deidre Chetham knows about the lives of the people who live along its shores, from fishermen plying their trade to monks entering temples of worship. In Before the Deluge, she captures a sense of their daily lives, records their traditions and, ultimately, paints a compelling portrait of a vanishing world.
