In a distinctive perspective, the series introduces how the Chinese combine the history, ecology, and nature with the humanistic culture in China. Authored by first-class scholars and experts, it is rich in academic value, social value, and economic value. It includes the first-hand data obtained from scientific explorations as well as a large number of rare photographs. It is distinctive in themes. Through pictures and articles, the series provides the readers with the colorful and fascinating scenery, whether humanistic or ecological, in China. While marveling at the spectacular landscape of China, its profound culture, and long history, readers will come to realize the importance of protecting the cultural heritages, ecology and nature.
