River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze


SKU: 9780060855024 Category: Tag: Product ID: 67546


Hessler takes students on an unforgettable journey to a small village in China where he spent two years teaching English. What he discovers while in this remote village is far more than he ever thought possible. This is a very intimate and human look at a town’s struggle to adapt to the modern world that surrounds it.

“Charming and insightful. . . . Poignanthilarious. . . . Lively, intelligent. . . . You will learn a great deal about real life in contemporary China in River Town, and about how that vast country appears in the eyes of a sensitive, aware, rugged young American who keeps both his eyes and his mind open.”–New York Times
