Land of Yesterday, Land of Tomorrow: Discovering Chinese Central Asia
Brent Ashabranner (au); Paul, David & Peter Conklin (ph). Chinese Central Asia, long cloaked in mystery & legend, was the route of the ancient Silk Road over which goods & ideas flowed between China & Persia, India & Europe. It is a land of towering mountains & a desert so fearful that its name means “if you go in, you won’t come out.” Now called Xinjiang Province, this region is part of the PRC. Closed to outsiders by the Chinese gov’t. in 1949, Xinjiang was opened briefly to foreign visitors between 1984 & 1990. Award-winning photographer Paul Conklin & his sons photographed the Uighur & Kazakh residents & traveled to the city of Kashgar, 2,000 years old. A fascinating look at a little-known but important part of China. Juvenile audiences.
