The Solk Road was once the main thoroughfare for the echange of gods, culture, and art between China, the MIddle East, and Europe. It was along this route that the great religions of Buddhism and Islam were to enter China.
This inspiring photographic essay takes the reader down China's Old Silk Road to the marketplaces of Chinese Turkestan. it captures the vibrant trading of the bazaar and the colourful people who congregate there to buy and sell.
Photographs of great beauty, accompanied by an evocative and well researched text, chart a fascinating journey through the Taklimakan Desert, the 'Desert of Death', to the flourishing oases of Turkestan, whose inhabitants learned long ago to turn the desert into rich farmland and vineraydes. Peter Yung delves into the region'shistoty, describes the legendary trading cities of Kashi, Sache, and Hotan, and discusses current efforts to maintain the Islamic heritage and identity of Xinjiang
