Chang Jiang 180 degree bend at Shigu, Yunnan Province

Ben Oostdam story # 594


In 1983, I sailed down the Three Gorges of the ChangJiang
departing from Chunking (Chongqing)

I was fascinated by the mere thought of using crews of tow men to navigate
heavily loaded junks up and down the river rapids and gorges.
So I was glad to find the following two versions of
"The Yangtze River Tow Men" . . .
published by "Three Gorges Probe"

The Yangtze River Tow Men - shortened story
The Yangtze River Tow Men - full story .pdf version
