The Emperor’s River: Travels to the Heart of a Resurgent China
In his second book, Liam D’Arcy-Brown sets out to be the first Westerner in modern times to travel the length of China’s great wonder, the Grand Canal. Attempting to remember the China that fascinated him as a child, Liam is faced with a modern, more open China now. He barters his way onto the enormous barges that carry bulk building materials for China’s rapid modernisation, follows the world’s longest man-made canal and accounts for a list of characters and historical but forgotten sites from China’s ancient past. The Emperor’s River provides a captivating insight into a side of China that is rarely seen.
Grand hardly justifies the enormity of China’s feat:
Built: 1,400 years ago
Earth excavated: 2.4 billion cubic yards
Total length: 1,115 miles
Annual freight: 260 million tons
