Country Driving: A Chinese Road Trip (P.S.)

Country Driving: A Chinese Road Trip (P.S.)

"Peter Hessler is back with another wonderful book exploring China’s growth in the world. This time, he starts with cars. As the number of cars in China skyrockets, everything else in society changes: Roads reduce the isolation of rural towns; farmers begin opening restaurants and inns. There's more food, more wealth, more pollution, more trash, and a totally different set of stresses and challenges for everyone in the country. Hessler captures the changes and challenges with good humor and a clear eye."

One of The Economist's Best Books of the Year From the bestselling author of Oracle Bones and River Town comes the final book in his award-winning trilogy on the human side of the economic revolution in China. Peter Hessler, whom the Wall Street Journal calls "one of the Western world's most thoughtful writers on modern China," deftly illuminates the vast, shifting landscape of a traditionally rural nation that, having once built walls against foreigners, is now building roads and factory towns that look to the outside world.
