Life in the Three Gorges area of China has always been hard. The Yangtze River has been the major artery for the area for thousands of years.

Millions of residents have been uprooted and are forced to make new lives away from the villages and farms they have always known.

The author has travelled extensively in this area for several years, and watched the progress of "progress".
