All Across China is a collection of articles, essays and travelogues with a little travel advice and a lot of passionate and personal descriptions of the land, history and people. The Topic of “China” is so broad that an entire country and several very different cultures all jostle around inside of it. The biggest population in the world can hardly be summed up in one single book. So, We did not even try- not even close. We touch briefly on all the things that came to mind: several provinces, a couple of notable cities, some cultural, historical and religious musings. That’s it. This book is filled with delicious details and picturesque descriptions that we wrote for whatever reason and never published. We decided to collect them together and publish them in one place because, well, we like them! Individual pieces included in this book are: Provinces Qinghai Province Guangxi Provence Gansu Province Fujian Province Ningxia Province Guangdong Province Cities Beijing Temples Nanchang and the Revolution Nanning: An Herbal Paradise Dali: Home of the Bai Pingyao is Old School China Qing Yuan and Foshan: Art and Industry Qiqiha’er: The Oldest City in China Ruili- Vegas, Chinese Style Shanghai Museums Anchor Its Past Fenghuang: the Phoenix Peaceful Ganzi History, Mythology and Religion Religions in Ancient China Asian Cultural Worship Hanuman: Patron God of Learning Lama Priest Funeral: The Monguor People Neo-Confucianism Taoist Scriptures The Ancient Mythology of Birds The Role of Filial Piety in Confucianism
