THE JUNKS AND SAMPANS OF THE YANGTZE
The rivers and harbors of China teem with junks and sampans, and almost as amazing as their numbers is the multitudinous variety of types, evolved over the centuries to meet the needs of special and sometimes rather exotic kinds of waterborne commerce. Worcester takes the reader to one of the great rivers of the world for a last look at a timeless land just before time there ceased to stand still. Well illus.
