About the book

A Single Pebble

cover of A Single Pebble by John Hersey
ISBN 9780394756974 Alfred A. Knopf

A young American engineer sent to China to inspect the unruly Yangtze River travels up through the river's gorges searching for dam sites. Pulled on a junk hauled by forty-odd trackers, he is carried, too, into the settled, ancient way of life of the people of the Yangtze -- until the interplay of his life with theirs comes to a dramatic climax.
