China's Great Wall takes an all-new approach to the story of China's crown jewel. The inspiring history of the wall's more than 4,000 miles of earth, stone, and brick is told through the photographs of Zhai Dongfeng, who has spent the last 20 years traveling along the wall—a "labor of love." More than 175 spectacular photographs explore the Great Wall's geography, construction, history, architecture, archaeology, and the lives of the people living near the wall. This book includes spectacular panoramic foldouts presenting a unique story—2,000 years of China's history, representing the great themes of its heritage, and much more.
Peng Ruigao, the member of the Chinese Writers' Association, council member of the Shanghai Writers' Association, and national first-grade writer, has published several novels and essays.
