Although Jinny's early childhood attempts to dig through the earth to China were unsuccessful, about thirty years later, in 1980, she got her first chance to travel there. The tourist highlights of that initial excursion included a section of China's signature landmark, the Great Wall. Since then, Jinny has deepened her knowledge of Chinese culture and language, and has traveled to China eight more times. During nearly three years of living in and journeying through some of China's less-frequented rural areas, she's seen both western and eastern terminuses of China's 5,500 mile wall. This book brings to life her varied experiences with China. Part memoir, part travel narrative, part environmental plea, Where the Great Wall Ends will increase your understanding of this vast, diverse, and sometimes fragile land.
