Roads of Renewal: A Tibetan Journey

About the book:
Roads of Renewal records the struggles, triumph and hardship shared by Chinese soldiers during the construction of the major highways through Tibet. The author, Dang Yimin, wants to present the book as a gift to those heroic armed detachments who paid and continue to pay, a great price to ensure the highways run unblocked; and to dedicate it to his beloved comrades who now sleep beneath the snowy mountain.
