    About this book

China's famous mountains spread across the vast land to the north and the south of the Yangtze River. They are mystically elegant, magnificent, and precipitous, showing a rich and varied natural landscape. The Chinese have always adored and awed by mountains since ancient times. Mountains are the sources of the richest and the most legendary Chinese ancient myths and folklores. Mountains have also become a flourishing center of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. This book introduces a variety of well-known mountains in China and the temples, pagodas, pavilions and grottos built on these mountains, presenting the five-thousand years of the Chinese mountain culture.
The Chinese Red series is a collection of 70 Chinese-English bilingual books dedicated to introducing the versatile Chinese culture of 5,000 years. Each of the topics in this series covers a specific aspect of Chinese culture or geography, to name just a few, Chinese Surnames, Folk Shadow Play, The Silk Road. To explain each topic, Chinese history, customs, folk stories, and social values related to this topic are introduced with the aid of photos. For anyone interested in learning Chinese culture in depth, this series is definitely a must-read.
