Chinas meteoric rise to economic powerhouse might be charted with dams. Every river in the country has been tapped to power exploding cities and factories every river but one. Running through one of the richest natural areas in the world, the Nujiangs raging waters were on the verge of being dammed when a 2004 government moratorium halted construction. Might the Chinese dragon bow to the Angry River? Would Beijing put local people and their land ahead of power and profit? Could this remote region actually become a model for sustainable growth? Ed Grumbine travelled to the far corners of Chinas Yunnan province to find out.
