China Along the Yellow River (lit. )

Non-fiction by Nicky Harman.

In 1996, Cao Jinqing travelled through rural Henan, observing local conditions and major problems, and this is the account of his journey. It is a work of sociology, but is written in the form of a diary which manages to be amusing and moving as well as informative.
